Educators Push for More Education in Prisons

Some Wyoming officials and educators are pushing for better access to post-secondary education for people in state prisons.

It’s part of an initiative from a national organization to make higher education more available in state facilities.

Research from the RAND Corporation shows people are 43 percent more likely to stay out of prison if they receive some form of post-secondary education, whether it’s career training programs or college classes.
