Education for Incarcerated Youth

Some of the other discussions in this group reminded me of a startling article I read some time ago, which I have used as a "spring board" for informing my intended policy proposal. This article offers some concerning data and information about the dismal quality of the education provided to incarcerated youth in the state of Michigan. In addition, it highlights how this problem makes it significantly more difficult for many youth to reestablish themselves in "normal" schools, which presents issues that can result in recidivism. I am interested what solutions others in the caucus may think would be successful, if implemented.
