Purpose of Program:

(1) Supporting individuals, especially low-skilled adults, in their transition from correctional institutions 2 into the community by strengthening and aligning educational services 3 provided in those settings; (2) establishing a strong program infrastructure to support and improve education services in correctional institutions; (3) ensuring that education is well integrated into correctional institutions by making it a critical component of the intake and pre-release processes, and by aligning it with support and employment services; and (4) encouraging individuals in correctional institutions to identify and achieve education and career goals, recognizing that their education paths are not linear or uniform.------------------------------------------------- 1 See http://www 2. ed.gov/about/offices/list/ovae/pi/AdultEd/reentry-model.pdf.
