New comprehensive resource aids people in prison in finding the best programs for their academic needs
To those in prison, Prison Legal News (PLN) is considered the bible of publications regarding prisoner’s rights, court rulings, policy changes, and other news concerning criminal justice.

Started in a prison in 1990 by Paul Wright, who is now free and the executive director of the Human Rights Defense Center, PLN provides an insider’s knowledge of the most compelling issues people who are incarcerated face. One of these issues is education. Reentry Central is pleased to announce the publication PLN’s latest guide on education. From the PLN announcement:

“Prison Education Guide, by Christopher Zoukis, is the fourth in a series of books by Prison Legal News Publishing. It is the most comprehensive guide to correspondence programs for prisoners available today. This exceptional book provides the reader with step-by-step instructions to find the right educational program, enroll in courses and complete classes to meet their academic goals. It is perfect for the incarcerated student who lacks Internet access or the ability to attend education classes in person. Prison Education Guide is the latest and best resource on the market for the incarcerated nontraditional student. It includes a detailed analysis of the quality, cost, and course offerings of all college correspondence programs available to prisoners. In a time when so many academic opportunities in prisons have been eliminated, this book is an invaluable reentry tool for prisoners who seek to further their education while incarcerated and to help them prepare for life and work following their release.”
