Title: No Adult Left Behind: An Examination Of The Perception Of Parolees Toward The GED And Its Possible Impact On Recidivism
Author: Bircher, Elisa Louise
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the perception of offenders toward a general education degree. The data is compiled using a 27-question survey of offenders currently on parole and reporting to the Fort Worth II District Parole Office in Fort Worth, Texas. The research found that there are statistically significant differences between offenders who are on parole for the first time and those who have been on parole more than once. In general, offenders who have been on parole more than once perceive that acquiring a general education degree while they are incarcerated is more important than those offenders who are on parole for the first time.
