Many college-in-prison graduates achieve success and the positive effects for their families and communities are dramatic. College-in-prison programs greatly reduce recidivism, leading to savings in the cost of prisons. They increase employment, allowing the formerly incarcerated to support families and reintegrate into communities. College programs decrease violence within prisons, improving conditions for officers and inmates. Liberating Minds makes the case for these benefits and also tells the stories of formerly incarcerated students and the remarkable transformations in their lives.
