In this research we present a replication study of an earlier meta-analysis that investigated the effect of correctional education programs on recidivism. The original study did not correct for publication bias, so testing for and correcting for publication bias is the focus of this replication study. Our findings suggest that publication bias may have lead to a modest over-estimate of the positive effect of correctional education programs on recidivism rates in the original study, but after correcting for publication bias, the evidence that correctional education programs are cost-effective remains strong.
