Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the number of inmates ages 18-21 with disabilities, the type of their disabilities, the cost of housing inmates and the rate of recidivism. This study also examined the number of students with disabilities ages 18-21, in schools receiving special education services. These ages were chosen to include adults in their earliest years which made it possible to compare populations of inmates to school students. The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) states that a person must receive special education services until age 21 should they desire it
