Prosecutors Endorse Pell Grants for Prisoners

On Thursday, the nation’s largest organization for prosecutors endorsed an idea we touched on a few weeks ago. Let people in prison apply for federal grants toward higher education. Don’t cut them off completely.

In the press release, the National District Attorney Association backs a federal bill that would restore eligibility for Pell grants to prisoners who qualify for them. It’s called the Restoring Education and Learning (REAL) Act.

The bipartisan bill had been endorsed by everyone from the American Bar Association and the American Civil Liberties Union to the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.

And now too by the country’s corps of smart, forward-thinking prosecutors.
