"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."

George Washington Carver penned these words in an 1896 letter to Booker T. Washington, and they apply perfectly to the work of our NDCS education professionals! 

While the pathway to reentry is unique for each incarcerated individual, many pathways find a foundation within the education department – whether through attainment of a high school diploma, completion of a GED, enrollment in workforce readiness courses, or even the journey through post-secondary opportunities. 

Thanks to the dedication of our NDCS educators, last year 88 individuals completed their GED and 25 individuals graduated from the NCYF Community High School! 

As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we thank all NDCS education professionals. This team currently includes 20 teachers, three career readiness instructors, an administrative specialist, a program manager and a principal. Today is your week, and we appreciate everything you do! #NationalTeacherAppreciationWeek
