Welcome to the LINCS Correctional Education Group.

The group is a community of practice for corrections educators who work in prisons, jails, and juvenile settings to explore issues related to teaching incarcerated adults, including research and evidence-based practices, policies, and related resources.

Topics discussed include:

  • Educational interventions that help incarcerated adults obtain the skills needed to get and keep a job, acquire a high school diploma or its equivalent
  • Transition to postsecondary education or training
  • Evidence-based practices that reduce recidivism, facilitate reentry, and improve public safety
  • Serving individuals with barriers to employment including individuals who are ex-offenders
  • Other issues related to teaching incarcerated adults and juveniles, including research and evidence-based practices, policies, and related resources
