COLUMBUS: A new report says the number of Ohio prisoners earning their high-school equivalency diplomas is up over the past three years.

And, according to the report from the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee, Ohio’s achievement rate in this area beats the national average.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Ohio’s GED certificate rate is 41.4 per 1,000 inmates. That’s above the above the national average of 31.8.

Washington has the highest rate at 74.7, while California has the lowest at eight per 1,000 inmates.

Inmates who complete education programs behind bars are 43 percent less likely to return to prison, and employment after release is 13 percent higher.

Ohio’s recidivism rate last year hit a record low of 28.7 percent, well below the national average.
