Research resources

Wyoming Pathways from Prison invites you to research the topic of education and the prison system, and we have begun compiling resources to assist with this research (provided below).


A starting point

Prison reform: Reducing recidivism by strengthening the Federal Bureau of Prisons (from the US Department of Justice; https://www.justice.gov/prison-reform)

Locked up and locked out: An educational perspective on the U.S. prison population (from Educational Testing Service, 2006; https://www.ets.org/Media/Research/pdf/PIC-LOCKEDUP.pdf)

Making the Grade: Developing Quality Postsecondary Education Programs in Prison (from the Vera Institute of Justice, 2016; https://www.vera.org/publications/making-the-grade-postsecondary-education-programs-in-prison)
