Developing Adult Education Programs for Probation and Parole.
This handbook, consisting of a program development model that is based on three programs for ex-offenders that were implemented in Texas in fiscal year 1983, is designed to assist adult educators in implementing adult education programs for persons on parole or probation. Discussed first are the purpose of the handbook, the individual sites of the three pilot projects, the main objectives of the guide, and pertinent terms. Guidelines are set forth for coordinating program activities with the Board of Pardons and Paroles. Examined in the next few chapters are various aspects of the model, including referral, identification, assessment, counseling, curriculum planning, and staff training. Concluding the guide are maps of parole regions in Texas and adult education cooperatives in the state as well as lists of contact persons in adult education programs in the state and on the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.
