Looking forward from behind bars: Local educators visit San Quentin for perspective on supporting students.
September 3, 2016
Local educators took a field trip to a place where they hope none of their students end up.
Members of the San Mateo County School Boards Association traveled Thursday, Sept. 1, to San Quentin State Prison, where they received an inmate-led tour of the high-security correctional facility.
The focus of the trip was learning techniques from those in the rehabilitation system which could have helped them avoid making poor decisions, in the interest of improving the support services offered to local students.
