Inmate and Ex-Offender Postsecondary Education Programs in California. Summary.
Rose, Clare; Nyre, Glenn F.
Postsecondary education programs available to inmates, wards, and ex-offenders in the State of California are examined in this summary report. Data were collected from five areas: (1) correctional institutions and postsecondary institutions; (2) surveys of inmates, wards, ex-offenders, and employees of correctional institutions and faculty from participating colleges; (3) parolees who participated in a postsecondary education program while incarcerated; (4) case study site visits to prison-based postsecondary programs; and (5) case study site visits to ex-offender programs offered by postsecondary institutions. A brief description of 16 California correctional institutes and their education programs is provided, and programs for ex-offenders at community colleges and state universities are also described. Recommendations are made in the area of program delivery, expansion of postsecondary programs beyond the associate degree level; accessibility of programs; facility and services improvements; increased emphasis on ex-offender programs; and increased resources allocation.
