North Dakota Still Focused On Reform Two Years After Visiting Norwegian Prisons With PLO
Bismark Tribune – October 14, 2017, In a Bismarck classroom last month, students learned the Pythagorean theorem.
They took notes and asked questions as their teacher explained how to calculate the hypotenuse of right triangle. It was fairly normal, except the students and teacher wore the same outfit — jeans and a white T-shirt — and none of them will be allowed to leave school property for several months or years.
The classroom is inside the North Dakota State Penitentiary. The man teaching that day is serving a 30-year sentence.
