MCKEE, JOHN M.; AND OTHERS
AFTER RECEIVING VOCATIONAL TRAINING AT THE CENTER, 36 YOUTHFUL OFFENDERS WERE PAROLED AND PLACED ON JOBS. THOSE WORKING IN ALABAMA WERE BEING VISITED IN THEIR HOMES BY THE PLACEMENT OFFICER AND PERSONNEL COUNSELOR TO DETERMINE PAROLEE SUCCESS IN ADJUSTING TO SOCIETY. THE INSTRUCTORS WERE PLEASED WITH THE PROGRESS OF THE SECOND GROUP OF TRAINEES AND WERE PREPARING FOR THE GRADUATION OF 19 INMATES FROM 12-MONTH COURSES AND 49 INMATES FROM 6-MONTH COURSES. THE VOCATIONAL COUNSELOR WAS RECRUITING AND INTERVIEWING INMATE APPLICANTS FOR THE NEXT SERIES OF COURSES. THE MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT UNIT WAS MAKING FINAL REVISIONS IN PROGRAMED LESSONS FOR FIELD TESTS OUTSIDE THE PRISON POPULATION. INADEQUATE SPACE AND TIME FOR COUNSELING CONTINUED TO BE A MAJOR PROBLEM. THE APPENDIXES INCLUDE--(1) MATERIALS FOR THE 1966 REPORT OF THE SECRETARY, UNDER THE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 1965, (2) ENROLLMENT AND PLACEMENT DATA CHART, (3) REPORTS OF TWO CONFERENCES ATTENDED BY THE STAFF, (4) A CALENDAR OF FIELD TESTS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND (5) SUMMARIES OF FOLLOWUP VISITS TO PAROLEES.
