While working with prison systems, work release programs, mental hospitals, and alternative settings in the public schools, it has become clear to this author that the almost universally accepted idea of rehabilitating criminal offenders is basically false, a myth. The author argues that we need to stop wasting time and money on current forms of rehabilitating criminals and adopt less-traditional methods.
