My guy would take a music class,or mechanics....while I think he should really take an anger management class.....since anger is the root of why he is where he is.

He hates to draw, although he's good at it. He's already earned his GED and completed mandatory Anger Management, LOL...he would want to do something like mechanics. Something he could use when he comes home.

HVAC or Waste Water Treatment certification. Both so helpful on the outside, companies that often hire felons.

Well I chose 'other' because even though he would take just about any class available if he could he would love to do some sort of cooking class.

That man sure loves his food he tortures himself constantly with any number of food shows on television.

Shame they won't let guys with longer sentences or life do most of these classes they offer. I understand they most likely won't be able to use what they learn on the outside so it's not productive in that respect but it would mean so much to them on so many levels while inside. Oh well what you going to do they don't seem to want to be moved on it.
