Vocational Education in Correctional Institutions: Summary of a National Study. National Study of Vocational Education in Corrections. Technical Report No. 3.
Abram, Robert; Schroeder, Paul E.
This report presents the data from a national survey which was designed to answer the question, "What is the status of vocational education in correctional institutions?" The data were collected from 459 institutions (state, federal, military, and jail) which offered vocational education at the time of the survey; the purpose of the survey was to develop a data base for future planning and evaluation. Data are reported in these fourteen sections: facility and inmate characteristics; goals for vocational education programs; enrollments in vocational education programs; age and race of students; shops, equipment, and lesson plans; special needs groups; organization, delivery, and accreditation; expenditures; scheduling; entry requirements, procedures, and incentives; instructional staff characteristics; guidance, counseling, and job placement services; student status after completion of vocational education programs; and program additions, changes, and curtailments. Each section includes a brief narrative highlighting the data presented. Data are tabulated separately for youth and adult facilities in terms of frequencies, percents, and means. Appendixes include identification of the survey population, development of survey forms, and data collection and analysis methodologies. (This and two other technical reports are included in the final report, ED 151 569.) (YLB)
