Education Programs

Education opportunities provided to federal prisoners include basic literacy, a wide range of occupational training programs, and leisure-time activities. By policy, with minor exceptions, all federal prisoners who do not have a high school diploma or GED must enroll in the literacy program.

All promotions in federal prison industries and institution work assignments beyond the entry level grade are contingent on successful completion of a literacy program.

Effective November 3, 1997, inmates with a Violent Crime Control Law Enforcement Act (VCCLEA) sentence or a Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) sentence must participate in the literacy program and make satisfactory progress to vest/earn good time.

Also, by policy and with minor exceptions, inmates who do not speak English must participate in the English-as-a-Second Language program.

Vocational Trades
