Florida Prison Education Project

Founded in 2017, FPEP is an initiative of the University of Central Florida that seeks to offer a high-quality undergraduate education to people who are incarcerated in Central Florida.

Spending $1 per prisoner on prison education saves $4 to $5 in the future for decreased rates of recidivism. The U.S. spends $31,000 to incarcerate someone each year. Prison education reduces the 54% recidivism rate by 40%. Source of stats: Office of Justice Programs, The Nation, RAND Corporation
