Education Writers Association recognizes College Behind Bars

We are proud to announce that College Behind Bars is a finalist for the Education Writers Association’s 2019 National Awards for Education Reporting.

Comments from the Judges include:

“The commitment and effort the filmmakers took to tell the stories of inmates trying to better their lives by obtaining a college degree – and what their stories say about our criminal justice system – is nothing short of incredible.”

“A remarkable film and important work by documentarian Lynn Novick. Video, audio, score, editing is highest quality…The film does honor to its subjects and the debate over the purpose of education and rehabilitation.”
