Correctional Education Supervisors

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca Says "My belief is that you can incarcerate a body, but you should never incarcerate a brain. The brain must develop regardless of what the environment is."     


Education-Based Incarceration initiative focuses on promoting intellectual growth in prisoners.  Enable inmates to use jail time to study for success once their sentence is up, cuting recidivism by only 10% and save more than $62 billion a year.

Educational programs break down racial barriers and help a facility to run more smoothly. Prisoner-students know misbehavior can jeopardize their studies, so they are better behaved, less violent, and more cooperative. They have a positive, stabilizing effect in an otherwise chaotic environment, creating a safer prison culture for all who live and work in the facility and becoming more cost effective.
