Why a Post-Parole Plan is Important

There is almost always an underlying reason people engage in criminal conduct. Identifying and dealing with that reason is a crucial step toward rehabilitation and release. Much in the same way that drug intervention can help inmates and parolees with substance abuse issues, having a post-parole educational and employment plan can help those who struggled with unemployment and poverty prior to incarceration and avoid the traps and habits that ultimately led to their criminal convictions. Many employers and educational institutions are please to welcome former convicts who are earnestly committed to reforming their lives and few facts are more compelling to a parole board than an offer of employment of acceptance to a university waiting for a parole candidate upon release.

Prison Educational Opportunities

Texas correctional institutions, especially state jails, offer a surprisingly wide array of educational and career development opportunities for inmates:

  • BASIC EDUCATION - Most institutions offer adult G.E.D. courses, as well as basic life skills instruction. These programs can help particularly disadvantaged inmates develop the skills necessary to maintain a basic level of self-sufficiency upon release.

  • VOCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT - The Windham School District is a discrete Texas agency that works alongside the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to provide educational and vocational development programs for inmates at 27 different Texas state correctional institutions. These programs, along with similar programs available at other institutions, can provide inmates with vocational foundations in food service, culinary arts, computer aided drafting, welding, cabinet-making, small engine repair, electrical trade, and more

  • COLLEGE EDUCATION - Several Texas institutions offer annex courses provided by Lee College. These courses allow inmates to begin or continue their post-secondary education while still incarcerated, potentially setting them up to complete their courses of study after release.


Plotting Your Course Once You Receive Parole Release

Being released even after a moderate period of incarceration can be intimidating. Many former inmates are overwhelmed by their newfound freedom and quickly relapse into their former damaging behaviors and habits. Texas parole panels realize this problem and, as a result, are very leery of inmates who do not appear to have a plan of action upon release. Therefore, having a realistic and thorough post-parole education and employment plan can help provide an extremely compelling argument favoring the inmate's parole during parole review. At the Law Office of Kevin Stouwie, we help inmates and their families identify and take advantage of the in-custody programs that can leas to a workable post-parole education and employment plan. We then advocate directly with parole panel members to highlight the inmate's participation and plan to increase the likelihood of parole release being granted.
