Did you know that without an education, inmates who are released are more likely to commit crimes and return to prison? The U.S. Department of Justice reports that nearly 80% of inmates return within five years.
However, educational degrees lower recidivism at an enormous rates:
- Associate degree holders return at a rate of 13.7%.
- Bachelor’s degree holders return at a rate of 5.6%.
- Master’s degree holders return at a rate of nearly 0%.
