Governor Laura Kelly today announced that participation in post-secondary education at Kansas adult correctional facilities has increased by more than 50 percent over the past year. As of this month, all nine Kansas Consortium of Correctional Higher Education (KCCHE) member colleges have been accepted to the U.S. Department of Education PELL Experimental Site Initiative, which provides need-based Pell grants to people in prison. Because of these partnerships, Kansas now leads the country as the only state to provide Pell-eligible college programming in every adult correctional facility.
