A Responsible Response to Realignment: A Basic Blueprint for California Cities and Counties to Build Ex-Offender Education
Jacob J. Walker
The Effective Education Projects
March 11, 2012
Written for city and county administrators, sheriff, police, and probation departments, and for office of education and school administrators, this report details key components and best known practices of building effective ex-offender reentry programs, using education as the foundation. By using educational funding, these programs can be created even with a lack of realignment funding. Two methods of gaining educational funding are suggested: using Pell Grants for post secondary programs and creating charter schools that can serve adult ex-offenders. A basic set of curricula are laid out that can help counties and ex-offenders get “more bang for their buck,” by combining academics with life and career skills. These methods have been tried and proven in the three case study examples of successful ex-offender education and reentry programs.
