How Educational Is Re-Education?


Subject:
Crime , Criminal Justice

Description:
This August 2008 article considers the recent functioning of "re-education-through-labor" camps in China. The article notes that "since the re-education-through-labor camps were created in the late 1950s, they have -- at least in theory -- been oriented toward 'rehabilitating' inmates both politically and morally" but now have an emphasis on many hours of labor, and not political study. Includes links to related material. From the online magazine Slate.
