Considering faith-based corrections programming

Considering faith-based corrections programming

Friday afternoon I am off to London…. London, Ohio, that is, to participate in this terrific seminar sponsored by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction on “Faith Based Programming, Reentry and Recidivism.”  As regular readers know, I am quite intrigued and even encouraged by the faith-based prison movement, and I will be explaining why I believe Establishment Clause issues should not unduly impede sensible efforts to do effective faith-based programming in prisons.

UPDATE:  As this article notes, the major litigation from Iowa concerning the faith-based prison program operated by Prison Fellowship through a contract with InnerChange Freedom Initiative Inc. is coming up for oral argument in the Eighth Circuit next week.  Interestingly, retired  Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is on the panel slated to hear the arguments.
