Abstract

This article is the first study examining college-in-prison programs as part of the cost-reducing and risk-management trends currently dominant in criminal justice systems. The article concedes that a college programs will not be of benefit to every inmate and may confer benefits on politically unpopular constituencies, but argues that such educational offerings are nevertheless a powerful tool for reducing recidivism and incarceration costs.
