ANNOTATION: The development of “a correctional education reentry model illustrating an education continuum to bridge the gap between prison and community-based education and training programs [is described]. The goal of this model is to ensure that offenders can gain the knowledge and skills needed to obtain long-term, living-wage employment, and transition successfully out of the corrections system” (p. 3). Sections cover: the reentry challenge; the education continuum as the reentry solution—the model (strengthening and aligning education services, establishing a strong program infrastructure, ensuring education is well integrated in the corrections system), and the application and validation of the model.
