Issues and Challenges Facing Special Education Teachers in a Correctional Setting.
Wolford, Bruce I.
Issues facing special educators working in a correctional setting are examined. The need for long-range planning is considered, and the use of the individualized education program to address specific as well as broad issues is advocated. A major need, for increased institutional priority (with both administrative and funding priority for educational programming), is considered along with problems of isolation facing teachers who feel alientated from other educators and from the community outside the institution. The resultant lack of professional identity can be alleviated by greater understanding of the field and the individuals' role unit. (CL)
