College Behind Bars

College Behind Bars

In this photo taken Thursday, Jan. 28, 2016, inmate Jayson Bush raises his hand in a college world history class at the Monroe Correctional Complex in Monroe, Wash. College education in American prisons is starting to grow again, more than two decades since federal government dollars were prohibited from being used for college programs behind bars. The shift comes as everyone from President Barack Obama to state policymakers are looking for ways to get better results from the $80 billion the U.S. spends annually on incarceration.
