GUIDE FOR INMATE EDUCATION. REVISED EDITION.
WILKINSON, FRED T.
AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM IN AN INSTITUTION CONCERNED WITH THE REHABILITATION OF AN INMATE MUST BE SOCIALLY AND VOCATIONALLY ORIENTED, WITH VOCATIONAL EMPHASIS ON THE TOTAL EDUCATIONAL PROCESS. SINCE THE MAJORITY OF INMATES ARE FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE, AND SINCE 90 PERCENT WILL EVENTUALLY RETURN TO SOCIETY, COURSES IN GENERAL EDUCATION ARE INTERWOVEN WITH VOCATIONAL TRAINING, WITH CLASSROOM EMPHASIS PLACED ON SUCH SOCIAL ATTITUDES AS RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY, THE ART OF SELF-CONTROL, THE DEVELOPMENT OF GOOD HEALTH AND WORK HABITS, EARNING A LIVING AND LIVING WITHIN ONE'S EARNINGS, MORAL AND SPIRITUAL VALUES, PROPER USE OF LEISURE TIME, AND PROVIDING AND MANAGING A HOME. THE EDUCATION PROGRAM OUTLINED IN THIS HANDBOOK IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR LEVELS--PRIMARY, INTERMEDIATE, JUNIOR HIGH, AND HIGH SCHOOL, WITH THE SCOPE, PROCEDURE, CONCEPTS TO BE EMPHASIZED, AND UNITS TO BE STUDIED GIVEN FOR EACH LEVEL OF EACH ACADEMIC COURSE. THE INMATE'S DAY CAN BE DIVIDED BETWEEN GENERAL EDUCATION AND VOCATIONAL TRAINING ACCORDING TO HIS NEEDS. VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE GROUPED BY TYPE (COOPERATIVE OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION, VOCATIONAL SHOP TRADE, ON THE JOB TRAINING, VOCATIONAL GENERAL SHOP, AND JOINT AGENCIES VOCATIONAL TRAINING) WITH REQUIREMENTS AND STANDARDS FOR INMATES AND INSTRUCTORS, PHYSICAL FACILITIES NEEDED, RECORD KEEPING, CERTIFICATION OF TRAINEE, AND GENERAL EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS LISTED FOR EACH.
