Manpower Development and Training in Correctional Programs. MDTA Experimental and Demonstration Findings No. 3.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
Four conferences on manpower development and training in correctional institutions were sponsored by the Manpower Administration to bring together the basic groups of people charged with responsibility in prisoner rehabilitation and to disseminate to them the significant results of experimental, demonstration, and research projects engaged in pre-release manpower training for prisoners. The full report of the first conference plus significant sections of the three later conferences are reprinted here as part of the series of monographs on manpower development and training experimental and demonstration findings published by the Manpower Administration. The conferences were also designed to reach decision makers at state and local levels who would have to coordinate their activities to implement the projected National Pilot Program of Prison Inmate Training under Section 251 of the Manpower Development and Training Act.
