Five Keys Schools and Programs began in 2003 in the San Francisco County Jail as the first charter school for incarcerated adults in the country. Its latest project, in San Francisco's Sunnydale neighborhood, is a traveling classroom — in the form of a refurbished city bus, painted lime green. The bus, called the “Mobile Self-Determination Project,” is equipped with teachers, desks and a library, and caters to adults seeking a high school diploma or GED. Two Five Keys staff members join Forum to talk about the program, which was featured recently in The California Sunday Magazine.
