Disabilities and Equitable Outcomes and Correctional and Reentry Education: Educational Equity and Access Issues for Adult Learners with Intellectual Disabilities
The Arc estimates 4-10% of U.S. prisoners have an intellectual disability. Join our community conversation on educational requirements as barriers to release for incarcerated people with cognitive disabilities. We'll be diving into the research and looking at reform opportunities and best practices to help alleviate this barrier for adult learners in correctional settings.
