Abstract or Summary
  • This study compared recidivism rates of adult male completers and non-completers of correctional education programs in ABE/GED/high school, vocational, and college transfer programs over a five-year period. A total of 1382 releasees was studied for the five years following their release. Recidivism was the dependent variable. Recidivism was defined as re-admission to prison in the state. The dependent variable was compared to the independent variable of education program and the extraneous variables of release age, first crime committed, and type of admission. A Logistic Regression Analysis showed significance for all of the independent and extraneous variables. A Paritioned Chi-square found significance for the independent variable, while controlling for the extraneous variables. Those who completed higher levels of education showed significantly lower levels of recidivism as measured by Chi-square. More research is recommended.
