Offenders more often than not, lack education and skills that make them employable.  In 1994, offenders were able to get Pell Grants to assist them in obtaining an education.  In September of 1994, due to the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act passed by Congress, offenders were no longer able to get this assistance.  By 1997, higher education for inmates was nonexistent. According to the Active Participant Model on p. 353 of the book, there is a listing of five things  that should be addressed for offenders.  After you have thought this over and read the materials that have been provided, please write on (1) how can we improve offender success and public safety as they reenter their communities?
