The Need for Correctional Education

The overwhelming majority of incarcerated individuals will return to society after their sentence is completed; therefore, North Carolina residents and policymakers must be concerned with their ability to be productive, contributing members of society upon their return. However, research suggests that a lack of education may increasingly limit formerly incarcerated individuals employment options and may promote their return to crime. In this panel discussion, we hope to give a short history of postsecondary education within prisons before explaining why postsecondary education may be an important part of the solution to this problem – and benefit society as a whole.

Lunch will be provided.
