Effective resettlement (reentry or aftercare) of children who have been incarcerated is a longstanding concern for policymakers and practitioners. Factors related to education provision have been shown to be significantly related to whether a child reoffends after release from custody. However, this paper demonstrates that about half of children do not engage with education after custody, and that in a large proportion of cases education has not been arranged for them prior to release. The paper presents a series of urgent issues to be addressed by policymakers.
