Nonprofits: Providing Education For People During And After Incarceration

In correctional facilities nationwide, more than half of incarcerated people have not finished high school. And in local jails, 69 percent of the population does not have a high school diploma, according to a report from the Alliance for Excellent Education.

Several nonprofit and governmental organizations in Philadelphia are currently working to help re-entering citizens find this success by providing educational offerings — both to those who are incarcerated and to those in re-entry.
