It is the intention of the General Assembly that, in making reductions beyond the closing of correctional schools associated with the closing of specific state adult or juvenile correctional centers, the Department of Correctional Education shall preserve existing academic and life skills instruction and vocational training programs in state facilities, which have been shown to be effective in reducing recidivism.  The Governor's Commission on Government Reform and Restructuring shall consider organizational changes which may be appropriate to best maintain the existing educational programs within the available resources.
