EXPERIMENTAL AND DEMONSTRATION MANPOWER PROJECT FOR TRAINING AND PLACEMENT OF YOUTHFUL INMATES OF DRAPER CORRECTIONAL CENTER, ELMORE, ALABAMA. 16TH PROGRESS REPORT, MAY 1-JULY 1, 1967.
MCKEE, JOHN M.
PROGRESS IN THE AREAS OF EMPLOYMENT, PUBLIC RELATIONS, THE CORRECTIONAL SYSTEM, COOPERATING AGENCIES, AND RECIDIVISM ARE ILLUSTRATED BY FOUR CASE STUDIES OF PAROLEE GRADUATES FROM THE CENTER'S EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM. OF THE 980 INMATES WHO APPLIED FOR TRAINING DURING 33 MONTHS OF PROJECT OPERATION, 271 COMPLETED TRAINING, AND 74 WERE PRESENTLY ENROLLED. ALL OF THE 208 PAROLED GRADUATES WERE PLACED, 170 IN TRAINING RELATED JOBS. THIRTY-SIX GRADUATES WERE RETURNED TO PRISON FOR PAROLE VIOLATION AND 16 FOR NEW OFFENSES. THE RATE OF GRADUATE RETURN TO PRISON WAS 25 PERCENT COMPARED TO 65 PERCENT FOR DRAPER INMATES WHO HAD NOT PARTICIPATED IN A TREATMENT PROGRAM. MAJOR REASONS GIVEN FOR LACK OF PAROLEE SUCCESS WERE "LACK OF MONEY,""LACK OF ABILITY TO HANDLE MONEY,""POOR WORK HABITS," AND "POOR PERSONAL-SOCIAL CONDUCT." STAFF INSERVICE TRAINING UTILIZING THE "MANAGEMENT BY OBJECTIVES" CONCEPT WAS CONDUCTED, THE RECIDIVIST PHASE OF THE FOLLOWUP STUDY WAS COMPLETED, THE STAFF PARTICIPATED IN CONFERENCES ON MANPOWER, AN INTENSIVE COUNSELING EXPERIMENT INVOLVING TWO STUDENTS WAS CONDUCTED, AND 40 STUDENTS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE PREVOCATIONAL BASIC EDUCATION CLASSES. THE APPENDIXES INCLUDED (1) EXCERPTS FROM "A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF DRAPER GRADUATES," (2) "DRAMATIC APPLICATIONS OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY IN CORRECTIONS" BY JOHN M. MCKEE, (3) A SUMMARY OF SOCIOECONOMICS DATA ON CURRENT TRAINEES, AND (4) PUBLIC RELATIONS MATERIALS. (EM)
