5 Illiteracy & Crime Adult low literacy can be connected to almost every socio-economic issue in the United States: More than 60 percent of all state and federal corrections inmates can barely read and write. Low health literacy costs between $106 billion and $238 billion each year in the U.S. 7 to 17 percent of all annual personal health care spending. Low literacy s effects cost the U.S. $225 billion or more each year in non-productivity in the workforce, crime, and loss of tax revenue due to unemployment (ProLiteracy). 85% of all juveniles who interface with the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate (National Assessment of Adult Literacy, 2003). Correctional populations report lower educational attainment than do those in the general population. An estimated 40% of State prison inmates, 27% of Federal inmates, 47% of inmates in local jails and 31% of those serving probation sentences had not completed high school or its equivalent while about 18% of the general population failed to attain high school graduation (Bureau of Justice Statistics Special Report 4/15/03 - Education and Corrections Populations - full report attached). Illiteracy and crime are closely related. The Department of Justice states, The link between academic failure and delinquency, violence, and crime is welded to reading failure. Over 70% of inmates in America s prisons cannot read above a fourth grade level ( More than 60% of all state and federal corrections inmates are considered "functionally illiterate" (ProLiteracy). 5

6 Illiteracy & Crime 85 percent of all juveniles who come into contact with the juvenile court system are functionally illiterate. So are 60 percent of all prison inmates. Inmates have a 16 percent chance of returning to prison if they receive literacy help, as opposed to 70 percent for those who receive no help. This equates, according to the study, to taxpayer costs of $25,000 per year per inmate and nearly double that amount for juvenile offenders. (California & New York spend over $200,000 per year on juveniles in their juvenile justice systems). "if we raise the number of third-graders who read at a third-grade level, we affect everything, from graduation rates to incarceration rates." 6

I beat the odds, he told me then said, please don t ever stop teaching on the inside." He still has his copy of Paradise Lost that we studied in a world literature class at Phillips State in Very gratifying to do this work!

10 Criminal Justice Reform in Georgia 3 Legs of Georgia s Criminal Justice Reform Adult Courts creating a variety of accountability courts helping keep non-violent offenders out of prison. Juvenile Courts similar to adult accountabilities. Re-entry Prisoner Re-entry and educational programs. Early Results Reduction of non-violent offenders in prison/under sentence in Georgia by approximately 10,000 inmates. Reduction of African American Males in prison by 19.1%. Reduction of African American Females in prison by 34%. CJ Reform efforts gaining national attention. 10

11 Why Correctional Education? Cause Decreased recidivism rates for individuals who have received an education while incarcerated. Approximately 60% do not have a HS diploma or GED. Decreased levels of violence while incarcerated and after release. Positive effect on children with incarcerated parents in pursuing their own educational endeavors. Most inmates will be released. Educational programs allow them to have something to fall back on in the real world. Approximately 17,000 inmates return home in Georgia each year. Return on Investment For every $1 invested in correctional education, there is $5 saved in future incarceration costs. Overall, this study shows that the debate should no longer be about whether correctional education is effective or cost-effective but rather where the gaps in our knowledge are and opportunities to move the field forward. -The Rand Corporation, 2014 For every $1 invested in vocational/technical programs in corrections, there is $12 saved in future incarceration costs (Source: Washington State Institute for Public Policy, 2012) 11

12 Why Correctional Education Can Be The Most Rewarding Job in American Education? Students come to class Don t bring cell phones Don t bring weapons Are not high or on illicit drugs Many inmate students are actually very appreciative and engaged You have on site school resource officers You have several parapros per class No CRCT s, EOCT s, SAT s, etc. No extra duties No parent conferences No TKES & LKES 12

The offenders are starting to make better decisions and focus more on what s important in life. It was moving to witness the unification of family and to allow their parents the opportunity to witness one of their accomplishments. Thomas Spencer -First and foremost I would like to thank the staff and teachers for allowing me to take the opportunity to take the GED classes and test. Receiving my GED was very important to me because you cannot get far without any education. This is only the beginning for my quest for knowledge. I foresee college or some sort of trade school in my future. The graduation really meant a lot to my mother because she has not seen any of her children graduate. I felt elated to be able to give her that experience. Thank you again staff and teachers at Smith SP. Carter Chernard -The GED program was enlightening and a confidence builder. The staff tried their hardest to assist us on our pursuit to discover ourselves and I m ecstatic. I did not let them or me down. What has been done for me is priceless. Even the ceremony was well put together. I m thankful and grateful and looking forward course from Adams College. Potts Arieus - I am honored to finally accomplish something that I have been working toward for a vast portion my young life. Getting my GED was a small step towards a greater endeavor. I give myself accolades because I persevered at this endeavor. I would like to thank everyone who helped in making this a success. It s a rare occasion where we can accumulate a positive vibe on behalf of a cause that will benefit our lives. It takes an amazing soul to move on one accord to acculturate a forgotten population of society.

29 Know Where You Are Going and Communicate It! Why are we doing this? What problem does this address? How is this new initiative a solution to a problem?

30 Human Impact of Correctional Education Education in the prison setting provides far more than a degree and lower recidivism rates...through its transformational powers, it provides for a socialization and self-actualization process that no other treatment program can offer. It allows offenders to better understand their self-worth and potential, and most often has offenders reaching out to their own children to encourage them to continue their education. Brian Fischer, Former Commissioner of the New York State Department of Corrections 30

31 Ongoing Challenges New GED Exam Revised cut scores!!!! Significantly reduced passing rates Computer administered exam CTAE teachers for specialized programs Adding technology to facilities not designed for its use Void of effective instructional technology Classroom space is an issue in some locations and continues to be addressed Insuring teacher effectiveness Expanding educational time by scheduling and other innovations Need to expand partnerships with TCSG and local technical colleges Pathways are limited to career programs Resistant cultures that exist among some inmates and some personnel 31

32 The Way Ahead GED Fast Track & Overall Emphasis on LRR, ABE, & GED Charter Schools Fully Operational Expansion of Vocation Educational Programs (Welding, Film Industry Technician, Horticulture, & Others) Expansion of College Programs (Emanuel, Johnson, & Rutledge) Evidence Based Facilities (Lee) Expansion of RSAT (Bleckley & Paulding) Juvenile Assessment and Programming GOAL (Jpay) Tablet Deployment - >5,000 Deployed Increased Leverage of Instructional Technology Lifers / Mentoring Programming
