In review, as shown in the comparison table, both the WSIPP meta-analysis and the Florida studies or analyses show reductions in recidivism rates for selected programs.
NOTE - In October 2006, WSIPP will publish the next step of their analysis which deals with program ‘return on investment’ (ROI). A ROI study conducted in 1999 by Florida TaxWatch that included correctional education programs in FDOC showed an important ROI for each area of correctional education. The return on investment (over 2 years) for each dollar spent in each respective area was: $1.95 for Special Education students in Academic programs; $3.23 for non-Special Ed students in Academic and Vocational programs; and $3.20 for all students in correctional education programs combined.8
