An interview with Sunny Schwartz

Today's Chronicle features an interview with Sunny Schwartz, whose thoughts on rehabilitation and restorative justice are inspiring and thought provoking.

A small excerpt:

My dream is that every jail and prison will be a place of no-nonsense change and responsibility. And that we build the safety nets for continuing education and programming - through our probation departments, churches, synagogues, chambers of commerce - that continue to invest in people's success.

Can you imagine if we had economic incentives for jails and prisons so they get more money if people don't return?

Ms. Schwartz will speak at our California Correctional Crisis Conference on March 19-20.
