Just a thought.......we are an "adult-serving" charter school in California with a large CTE population, one of only a small handful. One of our largest student groups are ex-offenders. Many more will be released from prison here in California next year if our Governor's ballot measure passes. Most of these will be untrained and therefore poorly prepared to reenter society - they need a "soft landing" if they are to succeed and become taxpayers. Very few of us heard about these grants when they were initially announced. What about the ex-offender problem? Apparently no easy answer....
