Earlier this spring, Mule Creek State Prison Creekside Adult School educated Folsom Lake College professors about teaching in a correctional setting.
The training represents a collaboration between the prison’s school and the college so professors can teach college-level courses during third watch.
Training ran from at 8 to 11:15 a.m. on C Yard then from 11:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on E Yard.
On Friday, 22 professors attended and 23 attended on Saturday. In addition, 10 students from C & E Yards assisted, fielding questions from professors.
“It was an exciting event. Approximately two-thirds of the college professors’ mindsets were positively changed about teaching in a correctional setting,” said one of the prison organizers.
