Abstract

Based on feedback from correctional education administrators in 12 states, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons, this guidebook summarizes key policy issues in correctional education and provides the variables and suggested coding instructions for the data needed to address these policy issues. The goal of the guidebook is to encourage states to align their reporting systems voluntarily around an agreed-upon set of definitions and reporting frameworks
