Two New Reports on Pathways from Prison to Postsecondary Education
June 1, 2019 In the Press
Two new reports were released on the Vera Institute for Justice's project: Unlocking Potential: Pathways from Prison to Postsecondary Education.
Supported by five national foundations, the project gave colleges and state corrections agencies in Michigan, New Jersey, and North Carolina the means to offer programs in prison and build reentry pathways that would keep participants engaged in education after their release.
The first report describes the project’s design and implementation as well as the experiences of Pathways partners and students, and provides recommendations on policy and practice for college programs with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students.
The second report from RAND and RTI offers a qualitative study of the students in North Carolina's Pathways program.
