Annotation: Data Collected from 346 inmates at the Eastern Correctional Facility in New York State support the hypothesis that educational programs on the college level and above are more important than Family Reunion Programs in promoting behavior in prison.
Abstract: While prior studies have shown that participation in the Family Reunion Programs enhances social control, these data suggest that social control is only enhanced by Family Reunion Programs among those participants who do not have a college education. (Author abstract)
