Prisoner Education = Success
FACT: Educated prisoners have the greatest opportunity to make a positive living inside or outside of prison walls.

Education Behind Bars Changes Lives
FACT: Getting an education behind bars gives prisoners a second chance at life, positive direction, and a realistic hope.
