MCKEE, JOHN M.; AND OTHERS
DISSEMINATION OF PROGRAM FINDINGS TO THE CORRECTIONAL FIELD IS A KEY OBJECTIVE OF THE CURRENT PHASE OF THE EXPERIMENTAL-DEMONSTRATION PROJECT FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING OF INMATES AT DRAPER CORRECTIONAL CENTER. LEADERS IN CORRECTIONS AND MANPOWER TRAINING WILL MEET IN FOUR CONFERENCES, PLANS FOR WHICH ARE OUTLINED IN THIS REPORT. BECAUSE 23 PERCENT OF THE 186 RELEASED GRADUATES OF THE PROGRAM HAVE BEEN RETURNED TO PRISON, A STUDY IS UNDERWAY TO ANALYZE THE FACTORS IN THE RECIDIVIST'S INABILITY TO SUCCEED IN THE FREE WORLD. QUESTIONNAIRES DRAWN UP FOR INTERVIEWS WITH THE RECIDIVIST, PAROLE SUPERVISOR, EMPLOYER, AND FAMILY ARE INCLUDED. TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL SKILLS NECESSARY TO ENTER VOCATIONAL COURSES AND ADVANCE IN TRADES, ALL TRAINEES ARE SCHEDULED FOR REMEDIAL CLASSES FOR EIGHT HOURS EACH WEEK. INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IS PRESCRIBED FOR EACH STUDENT ON THE BASIS OF HIS DEFICIENCIES AS INTERPRETED FROM THE METROPOLITAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST. ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT IS THE EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT BY A MANPOWER ANALYST IN THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, SUMMARIES OF ADMINISTRATION, COUNSELING, TRAINING, STATISTICS, AND PERSONNEL ACTIVITIES, AND TWO PAPERS--"COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE IN A CORRECTIONAL VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM," AND "SELECTION AND EVALUATION OF PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS."
