Today, nearly 300 Pennsylvania parole agents are attending the first of its kind in the nation educational event intended to educate staff about the importance of childhood education and provide them with resource information so they can assist reentrants and their families. The event was held at Harrisburg Area Community College. Two additional events are planned in Pennsylvania. A collaborative effort—hosted by the Department of Corrections and the departments of Human Services (DHS) and Education’s (PDE) shared Office of Child Development and Early Learning—also included prison and community corrections center counselors, social workers, unit managers, county probation officers, and DHS and PDE employees.
