This paper explores the relationship between the increased prevalence of promising education practices and positive educational outcomes. Employing pre and post educational measures, the findings demonstrate that those education programs operating with more promising practices as compared to those programs operating with fewer promising practices produce higher educational gains related to academic achievement tests, credits earned, and pupil progression rates. The implications of this finding for the successful community reintegration of incarcerated delinquent youth is discussed.
