Organization: Juvenile Corrections

Institutional education plays a critical role in reducing recidivism and increasing post-release success for youth in correctional facilities. Because education is so important, correctional facilities that are administering programs using Title I, Part D funds must ensure that youth who are incarcerated have access to a free appropriate public education (FAPE) with the same opportunities as youth who are not in secure settings.This can be challenging considering that youth with disabilities are disproportionately represented in correctional facilities; however, these youth can experience success when they receive the special education services they are entitled to combined with research-based, effective instructional practices.
