Title:The other pipeline: From prison to diploma: Community colleges and correctional education programs
Source:http://advocacy.collegeboard.org/sites/default/...
Date:2012
Organization:College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
Short Description:Education while in prison can provide ex-offenders with the skills that will better prepare them to make a positive contribution to society. This report investigates postsecondary education in prisons as a means of reducing recidivism and of helping ex-offenders, specifically males of color, enjoy a more successful life post release.
Annotation:The United States has less than 5 percent of the world’s population, but more than 23 percent of the world’s incarcerated people, putting the U.S. first among all nations. Race/ethnicity is an important part of this issue. In the U.S., African American men are more than six times as likely, and Hispanic men are two and one-half times as likely, to be incarcerated as whites. If the U.S. could reduce its disproportionate level of minority confinement by just 50 percent, its incarceration rate would rank fifth, instead of first, in the world. One means of reducing this prison population is to find ways to reduce the recidivism rate. Education while in prison can provide ex-offenders with the skills that will better prepare them to make a positive contribution to society. This report investigates postsecondary education in prisons as a means of reducing recidivism and of helping ex-offenders, specifically males of color, enjoy a more successful life post release.
