Correctional Education in Juvenile Justice Facilities

Released on December 8, 2014, the Correctional Education Guidance Package will help states and local agencies aimed at helping states and local agencies strengthen the quality of education services provided to America’s estimated 60,000 young people in confinement every day.

This guidance package is part of a number of notable actions from ED and DOJ, who are working together to help communities reduce the number of youth entering the justice system and to ensure that those who have entered the system return to their communities with dignity, skills and viable education and employment opportunities.
