L.E.A.D. with ComicsThe Literacy Education in Adult Detention (LEAD) With Comics is a six-week program for incarcerated adults that helps improve their literacy and art skills.
At Pop Culture Classroom, we believe anyone’s life can be transformed by the educational power of pop culture—and we can’t wait to share our passion for learning through graphic arts with the under served populations who are most in need of inspiration. In addition, current research shows that inmates that receive literacy education have a 16% recidivism rate, while those that don’t receive these services are over four times more likely to end up in jail again. The L.E.A.D. project is a creative way to reach struggling readers and help them find a positive way forward.
