PETITION:  In order to reform educational and training opportunities for approximately 183,000 men and women who are incarcerated in U.S. federal prisons, to reduce recidivism, to equip them with the tools and skills necessary to reenter society as productive citizens, AND, out of a deep concern for the children, spouses, and extended families of these prisoners, I urge you to support and actively advocate for the restoration of the educational opportunities and training programs announced by the Department of Justice in November, 2016. These reforms have been tabled by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons and include building a semi-autonomous school district within the federal prison system, reforming federal halfway houses, covering the cost of obtaining state-issued photo IDs for federal inmates prior to their release from custody and providing additional services for female inmates. One of the best ways to reduce crime is to reduce recidivism, and one of the best ways to reduce recidivism is by equipping inmates with the tools they need – at minimum a high school diploma – to reenter the workforce, be productive and reunite with families. This systematic plan of education and training remains intact and can provide hope, self-esteem, and confidence where little exists. It is not only sound public policy, it is a moral imperative and should be restored as quickly as possible. Do the right thing and reinstate the educational reforms which were originally recommended in the plan that was publicly announced by the U.S. Department of Justice on November 30, 2016.
