This solution features justice-impacted developers building open source technology to increase education access in prison, while at the same time creating scalable data infrastructure to support decarceration efforts.
Education is the most effective catalyst in creating opportunity and reducing recidivism for incarcerated individuals. Yet, most incarcerated individuals cannot access consistent, high-quality education. Many prisons are rurally located, without internet; most lack a consistent educational record-keeping system, further hamstringing reform.
UnlockEd is a non-profit with a secure education access and management platform built by impacted developers to offer a wider array of educational options, and gather reliable data on programs to drive system-wide decarceration.
