ATLANTA (WTOC) -
Gov. Nathan Deal urged legislators to commit more than $12 million to hire more instructors, establish prison charter schools and support other programs that aim to ease the transition of inmates after they are released back into society.
The governor's proposal includes establishing two charter school systems for the prison system and hiring 28 new staffers to train inmates. The goal, he said, is to train inmates for skilled work so they don't wind up back in prison.
