The article presents various activities of U.S. Department of Education (DOE) related to correctional education. The Life Skills for State and Local Prisoners Program is one of two correctional education oriented grant programs provided by the DOE. This program competitively funds three-year demonstration projects that provide life skills instruction in either state correctional facilities or jails. Both state and local correctional systems are eligible and compete together for funding. The grants are demonstration projects, so innovation, evaluation and dissemination are all key themes.
