        The Return Lesson Plan Clips

        The United States currently incarcerates a higher percentage of its population than any other nation-more than 2 million people are behind bars in American prisons and jails. As a result, many students’ lives have been touched by incarceration. In 2015, President Obama became the first president to visit a prison while in office, further highlighting criminal justice reform as a political issue. The vast majority of those serving time will eventually be released. And in too many cases, neither former prisoners nor their families or communities are prepared for reentry.
