Rebecca Livengood Decries Firing of Prison Education Director

Skadden Fellow Rebecca Livengood ('15) authored a blog post for the ACLU citing the Trump administration's firing of the first superintendent of the Bureau of Prisons' education system ("We Need School in Prison, and States Must Take the Lead," June 2). "This decision signals a tragic departure from what had been a growing acknowledgment of the importance of education for those locked up in our nation's prisons," the article said.
