An Evaluation of the Training Provided in Correctional Institutions under the Manpower Development and Training Act, Section 251. Volume III: Impact of the Training Program on Trainees. Final Report.
McDonnell, John C.
This third volume of a three part study evaluating vocational training provided in correctional institutions, focuses on the rehabilitation program's impact on offender post-release performance, evaluated in terms of recidivism and employment status. Data were obtained through post-release questionnaires distributed at selected intervals to trainees and control group members. Results indicated that the training programs had a positive effect on the trainees. In addition to program results, recommendations are given for program improvement on the national, state, and local levels. Related volumes one and two are available as VT 014 175 and VT 014 176 respectively. (Author/GEB)
