Ep.49 Education Behind Bars With Shannon Ross
Play • 1 hr 39 min

Shannon Ross has just re-entered the community after 17 years of incarceration, and he has PLENTY to say about his experience behind bars! Specifically about education while in prison. Shannon wrote a very well worded paper on some of the struggles he's had to go through while obtaining his education inside Wisconsin prisons. The roadblocks were numerous, and the system didn't make it easy on him. But he did it!

I take more of a backseat on this interview because after someone does 17 years, they need their space to talk. Fortunately for all of us, Shannon does a great job of addressing the issue and discussing how the system let him down, and how he took it upon himself to take control of his life.
