The Intersection of Education and Incarceration
Tannis, Lynette N.
Harvard Educational Review, v87 n1 p74-80 Spr 2017
In this "Harvard Educational Review" symposium article, Lynette N. Tannis provides an in-depth look at the juncture of education and incarceration. Tannis states that the denial and/or lack of educational programs within carceral settings are concerning given the size of the US prison system. Discourse about the intersection of education and incarceration, about race and equity, about scholarly research, policies, and practices is critical, and although there is movement in the right direction on some fronts, there are still many questions left to consider. Much more attention, scholarship, and understanding needs to be focused on the relationship between education and incarceration.
