Does correctional education impact recidivism rates?
The Correctional Education Association (CEA) completed a study called Three State Recidivism Study, which was designed to see if education, independent of other programs, could have significant impact on the behavior of inmates after release. Another CEA resource is The Impact of Prison Education Programs on Post-Release Outcomes. Also see the Urban Institute's The Effects of Postsecondary Correctional Education: Final Report.

For additional information, access the National Institute of Corrections site for Recidivism resources.
