No, education is not a panacea that will solve the problem of crime. In College For Convicts, Mr.

    He is brimming with the sort of intellectual curiosity all teachers hope to see in their students. Greene is one of the only facilities in New York that offers the New York State Plus program, an advanced GED program designed to prepare students for college-level work.
