Trauma-Informed Teaching and Learning: A DOC/GSE Working Group

Prisons are monuments to trauma and public school programming for young adults twenty-one and under who have not graduated from high school is especially challenging. The Initiative for Education and Justice (IEJ) at the Rutgers Graduate School of Education and the New Jersey Department of Corrections seek to create a year-long working group to address the challenges that trauma poses for incarcerated young adults and their instructors.
