Getting Back on Course: Educational exclusion and attainment among formerly incarcerated people

education report thumbnail

It's common knowledge that the U.S. criminal justice system funnels youth from schools to prisons - but what happens after that? How many people, for instance, are able to finish high school later? We break down the most recent data, revealing that incarcerated people rarely get the chance to make up the education they've missed.

This report is the third and last report in a series. In the previous two reports, we presented the first national estimates of unemployment and homelessness among formerly incarcerated people.
