Unlocking Opportunity for Incarcerated Learners
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to light the failures of U.S. mass incarceration and the need to address the revolving prison door. 95% of people in prison will get out someday, and research suggests that those who receive education are up to 43% less likely to reoffend and 13% more likely to land a job after release. Join us to learn how innovative delivery models for prison education can prepare inmates for post-release success and uncover the potential of millions of learners.
