Kodak Black might be behind bars, but he's no longer barred from trying to further his education ... TMZ has learned.
A judge has granted the rapper's request to have a tutor visit him while he's serving time in a Florida prison ... according to new legal docs. Kodak requested the assistance because he wants to get his GED. No word if he was granted a laptop ... which he also requested.
We broke the story ... Black was put in solitary confinement for a prison phone call violation, but filed legal docs asking for the tutor while he was in the hole.
Even better news for the rapper -- we're told he was released from solitary Monday.
