Abstract: GED Programming in Correctional Facilities

The purpose of this project is to examine the functioning of GED programming at the local, state and federal level. The question of how many inmates are in need of a GED versus how many actually obtain their GED is a pertinent one. If there is a gap, then discovering the reasons for that gap can lead to a more productive program. This project would encourage communication and collaboration between the government and the community as well as promote awareness of correctional education, setting an example for other communities to follow. There is also the potential for this project to add to the discussion on state and/or local legislation concerning educational programming in correctional facilities in the future.
