REPORT ON THE HARTFORD STATE JAIL PILOT REHABILITATION PROJECT 1965-1966.
MURPHY, DAVID R.
THE PILOT REHABILITATION PROJECT IN THE HARTFORD STATE JAIL BETWEEN FEBRUARY 1965 AND JUNE 1966 WAS SPONSORED BY THE CONNECTICUT STATE JAIL ADMINISTRATION AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, FINANCED UNDER THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963, AND ADVISED BY THE LOCAL OFFICE OF ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY AND THE AD HOC JAIL COMMITTEE OF THE GREATER HARTFORD COMMUNITY COUNCIL. THERE WERE FOUR PROGRAM COMPONENTS--COUNSELING (GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL), BASIC EDUCATION (ACADEMIC, NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING, AND LITERACY EDUCATION), VOCATIONAL EDUCATION (BUILDING A MACHINE SHOP), AND RECREATION AND LEISURE-TIME ACTIVITIES (OUTDOOR, INDOOR, AND LIBRARY FACILITIES). PROGRAM EVALUATION WAS BASED ON QUESTIONNAIRES COMPLETED BY INMATES AND STAFF. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO 164 FORMER INMATES WHO HAD PARTICIPATED IN COUNSELING AND/OR JAIL SCHOOL PROGRAMS. THE 14 RESPONDING WERE OVERWHELMINGLY IN FAVOR OF THE PROJECT. AN EMPLOYER QUESTIONNAIRE INCLUDED WITH THE INMATE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS NOT USED. WHILE THE MAJORITY OF THE GUARDS AND ADMINISTRATORS WERE IN FAVOR OF THE PROJECT, NEARLY A QUARTER WERE NOT. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES PROJECT PROPOSAL, INMATE, EMPLOYER, AND STAFF QUESTIONNAIRES, JAIL REHABILITATION PROPOSAL, AND INMATE DATA FORM AND PERCENTAGE DATA.) (AJ)
