Talking about Common Good Atlanta

Common Good Atlanta was started a few years ago by English professor Sarah Higinbotham -- she was later joined by GSU creative writing instructor Bill Taft -- to teach liberal arts classes at Philips State Prison, a medium-security prison in Buford, Georgia. In the videos below, Sarah and Bill, joined by other volunteer instructors, talk about the impact of the program on both their students and themselves. They all describe the inmates as being some of the most curious and engaged students they've ever taught.
