WASHINGTON — U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced today the U.S. Department of Education is inviting a new cohort of 67 schools to participate in its Second Chance Pell experiment, creating more education opportunities for incarcerated students. This action expands on the Trump Administration’s commitment to offer incarcerated individuals a second chance upon their re-entry to society, helping to reduce rates of recidivism.
