  • 399 从2001年开始上课的囚犯
  • 34 获得副学士学位的兰辛学生

为什么需要这个项目?

累犯

Earning a college degree is the single most effective tool to lower recidivism and to prevent individuals from returning to a life of crime after their release. 在美国, 70% of all inmates released will be arrested again within 5 years (backgroundcheck.com). Prisoners who participate in any kind of education program results in a 43% reduction in overall recidivism (Rand.org). With a college degree, recidivism drops to only 19% (US Sentencing Commission).

节省纳税人的钱 

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics the United States spends roughly $80 billion dollars per year to incarcerate roughly 2.3 million people -- many of which have returned to prison after being unable to find opportunity and employment after their release. With educated individuals exiting the prison system and experiencing a much lower recidivism rate, 这将节省数十亿美元. 

安全的社区 

回归犯罪生活的人越来越少, 我们将为所有人创造一个更健康、更安全的社会. 

对未来的展望

Providing inmates with an education creates self-sufficiency and self-confidence as they start to realize a better path in life and gain the necessary skills to attain it.
