An Examination of Academic, Policy and Social Considerations of Correctional Eduction and Offender Recidivism: Lessons for the 21st Century

Charles B.A. Ubah, Georgia College and State University

ABSTRACT
There has been a serious lack of examination of academic, policy and social considerations of correctional education and offender recidivism. The very few studies that have attempted to carryout such examination, have done so in passing without much attention to academic, policy and social considerations of correctional education and offender recidivism. They seemed to stop at a point where a more detailed examination of academic, policy and social considerations of correctional education and offender recidivism is needed (Hobler, 1999; Robinson, 1990 Mandel, 1963). To fill this gap, an examination of academic, policy and social considerations of correctional education and offender recidivism will be the focus of this study. An examination of these considerations is too important, and too costly to ignore.
