Did you know that every day in the United States of America, an average of 7,500 youth are incarcerated in adult correctional facilities? Also, about 65% of residential juvenile facilities offer educational services, varying in educational programming, to youth in custody? I will interview my colleague, Hilderbrand Pelzer III, award-winning educator, speaker, and author of "Unlocking Potential: Organizing a School Inside a Prison", who will share his perspective on how parents and educators can work together to unlock the potential of incarcerated youth.
