Vera Institute Correctional Education Discussion

Hello All,

I just returned from a wonderful gathering of professionals and policy-makers in the field of correctional education hosted by the Vera Institute in order to discuss how we as a professional community can better serve correctional education students.  The discussion grew from a previous ED summit held last Fall which began this important discussion.  Throughout the day we talked about many varied subjects within the field. What I'd like to do is share with the group a few topics at a time and ask for your feedback.
