Abstract

The flaws of private prisons have been demonstrated in practice and in theory. However, few alternatives to private prisons have been proposed. This Article proposes an alternative: charter prisons, run through public-private partnerships, which will be capable of providing more services to prisoners without increasing the cost to taxpayers.

Keywords: criminal law, private prisons, prison, public-private partnerships, charter schools, charter prison, prison reform
