With the restoration of Pell Grants to incarcerated students, the expectation is that the number of higher education programs will grow, benefiting students, their families and communities, as well as departments of correction, as such programs improve prison environments.
These benefits will only be realized, however, if the programs offered are quality programs that lead to student learning, credits, and degrees, write Catharine Bond Hill and Meagan Wilson of Ithaka S+R in this op-ed.
