Tell Congress to reinstate Pell Grant access for incarcerated students! Education reduces recidivism and improves our communities.

No one should be barred from getting an education. It’s time to lift the ban on Pell grants and give access to college education for nearly 1 million people.

"Prison does not rehabilitate people, so he took the steps himself." It doesn't have to be that way. Investing in education (& drug treatment, cognitive behavioral programs, & vocational training) for incarcerated people reduces crime & saves more $ than it costs.

Encourage your local university or community college to offer programs in prisons/jails. Also, ask your federal representatives to fully restore for incarcerated students.

"Obtaining a post-secondary degree while incarcerated lowers a person’s odds of returning to prison due to a new offense by 24%. Reduced crime & imprisonment not only means avoiding harm to persons and property, it also means saved taxpayer $$."

there is no policy more widely supported by advocates, incarcerated ppl, and ppl who run prison systems than real educational access in prison. It's time to bring it back. We saw broad, bipartisan support this weekend at ASCA. Not news, but good news.

14 pages of signatures — with over 400 professors and college-level educators — calling on Congress to restore Pell college grants to prisons and not exclude those serving life sentences! "Education is an intrinsic good." !
