Escape! by Ben Bova

I had a feeling I would enjoy Bova’s short works.

Here we explore a re-imagined penal system. 

A young man is sent to The Center which is run by a kind-hearted director who created the facility to help inmates learn the skills needed to re-enter society. 

The Center runs incredibly well with the help of an AI.  Having been written in 1970 it is amazing to see how very close we are today to achieving this kind of advancement. 

I found the story well told. I could see it adapted into a movie very easily.
