College in Prison: What I Learned This Week
Gerard Robinson, American Enterprise Institute
Last week, as part of a convening by the Vera Institute for Justice, correctional and higher education stakeholders came together to share their hopes, challenges, and best practices about participation in the Second Chance Pell Pilot Program (SCPPP).
The speaker lineup at the conference included a compelling mix of program administrators and advocates, some of which are formally incarcerated men and women. The American Enterprise Institute highlights some of the gathering's key takeaways concerning prison, practice, policy, and people.
