95% of them cannot be rehabilitated. Believe it.
Once they hit prison (after years and years of crimes, not just one!) it's too late.
Better to get the colleges and universities out of controlling what is taught in high school and middle school. Get rid of art and foreign language requirements, get back to the three R's and bring back trade classes, have more computer and technical classes, and teach kids to be productive adults, not to be college students. If you chart it out, probably parallel are the expectations of all kids to go to college with the rise in the number of people incarcerated in California. Fix education and the rest will follow.
