Extensive coverage of Pew recidivism report

As discussed here, yesterday the Pew Center on the States released this important new report titled "State of Recidivism: The Revolving Door of America‚Äôs Prisons."   I am pleased to see today a lot of national and local media coverage of this report, including these pieces:

  • From CBS News here, "Breaking the cycle of repeat crime offenders"
  • From CNN here, "Report promotes alternatives to prison as national recidivism rate holds steady"
  • From the Dayton Daily News here, "Ohio's decline in prison recidivism among steepest in US, study says."
  • From the Kansas City Star here, "Study praises efforts in Missouri, Kansas to cut prison recidivism"
  • From the Statesman Journal here, "Study hails Oregon's recidivism reduction even as funding cuts threaten it"
