EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION MANPOWER PROJECT FOR TRAINING AND PLACEMENT OF YOUTHFUL INMATES OF DRAPER CORRECTIONAL CENTER AT ELMORE, ALABAMA. FIFTH PROGRESS REPORT, MAY 1-JULY 1, 1965.
MCKEE, JOHN M.; SEAY, DONNA M.
INMATES WERE EXPERIMENTAL SUBJECTS IN A PROJECT FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND PLACEMENT. OF THE 46 WHO COMPLETED TRAINING IN MAY, 35 WERE PAROLED AND EMPLOYED, AND 11 WERE AWAITING PAROLE CONFIRMATIONS. A SECOND GROUP WERE ENROLLED. TO OVERCOME SOME STUDENT WEAKNESSES, A REMEDIAL NIGHT SCHOOL CLASS WAS INITIATED. THIS PROBLEM COULD BE ELIMINATED BY RAISING THE UPPER AGE LIMIT FROM 21 YEARS TO MAKE MORE QUALIFIED STUDENTS AVAILABLE FOR SELECTION. PLANS FOR A COORDINATED PRE-RELEASE PROGRAM WERE BEING MADE TO ALLOW INMATES THE OPPORTUNITY OF INTERVIEWING FOR JOBS OUTSIDE THE CENTER PRIOR TO PAROLE. A TENTATIVE FOLLOWUP PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED. PLANS FOR FIELD TESTING THE DEVELOPED PROGRAM WERE COMPLETED. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WERE TO REVIEW A PROPOSAL FOR DEVELOPING DEMONSTRATION VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR THE DISADVANTAGED WHICH WOULD UTILIZE MATHEMATICAL PROGRAMS AND AUDIOVISUALS SYNCHRONIZED FOR COMPUTERIZED INSTRUCTION. SOCIOECONOMIC INFORMATION ON THE NEW TRAINEES IS PRESENTED. THE EXTENSIVE APPENDICES INCLUDE--(1) A PROJECT EVALUATION, (2) A FOLLOWUP STUDY OF DRAPER'S MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT GRADUATES, (3) "A TRANSFER OF TRAINING CONCEPTS" BY JOHN M. MCKEE, (4) JUSTIFICATION STATEMENT FOR EXTENSION OF OFFICE OF MANPOWER, AUTOMATION, AND TRAINING CONTRACT 82-01-07, (5) A DESCRIPTION OF PREVOCATIONAL TRAINING, (6) FOUR TRAINEE CASE STUDIES, AND (7) INFORMATION ON THE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT UNIT.
