A veteran teacher gives an "inside" view of the lives of juveniles sentenced as adults David Chura taught high school in a New York county penitentiary for ten years-five days a week, seven hours a day. InI Donrs"t Wish Nobody to Have a Life Like Mine,hegives a face to a population regularly demonized and reduced to statisticsby the mainstream media. Through language marked by both the grit of the street and the expansiveness of poetry, these stories break down the dishy;visions we so easily erect between us and them, the keepers and the kept-and call into question the increasing practice of sentencing juveniles as adults.
