CEA Strategic Plan

CEA Vision:
CEA is a leading professional association in juvenile justice and adult correctional education, both nationally and internationally, providing leadership, direction, and services to correctional educators and programs, and representing juvenile justice and adult correctional education to broader educational, political, and social agencies.

CEA Philosophy:

Education is an effective rehabilitative program enabling detained and adjudicated juvenile and adult students to reassess their values, goals, and priorities in life in a positive way, while acquiring the personal, social, and technical skills necessary for a successful and permanent reentry into society as productive citizens, parents, and coworkers.
