“This nation’s prisons are full of people who have looked for salvation and redemption and have found God. Well, thanks to a recently ended academic program at the Women’s Prison in Goffstown, one inmate has found Plato. And she says her discovery has changed her life.”
That introduction begins a Dec. 28 New Hampshire Public Radio story about assistant professor Edward McGushin’s unusual philosophy class. The program was held last semester in the Goffstown Women’s Prison, and was funded by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and Saint Anselm’s Consortium on Justice and Society.
