Thanks, Jane.  This is reminiscent of a PBS show several years ago: "Bard Behind Bars".  Bard College is a prestigious private college north of NYC that runs an educational program in the nearby State Pen.  Someone asked the professor what the difference was in the two settings.  His memorable answer, "The students are far more serious here in the Pen."  I'm looking forward to the book.
