How can we solve the reentry challenge and ensure that incarcerated individuals and those under community supervision become productive members of society? Although there is no one answer, a growing body of evidence shows that providing offenders with education and training increases their employment opportunities, addresses their cognitive deficits, and helps reduce their likelihood of recidivating. More work is needed, however, to ensure that low-skill individuals in the corrections population have access to these services and can advance their education and employment prospects despite their correctional status. This book examines the role of education in reducing inmate recidivism with a focus on community-based correctional education strategies and guidance. (Imprint: Nova)
