Focus on the Future: Futurology for Correctional Education.
Cortright, Richard W.
Prepared for a regional training seminar on adult basic education (ABE) in corrections, this paper argues the importance of improving correctional education in order to equip prisoners more adequately for reentry into society, and thereby help reduce crime and recidivism. Accordingly, the author urges correctional program administrators to take various steps: (1) develop innovative programs which make a difference; (2) match teachers and learners for compatibility; (3) use volunteer aides; (4) establish linkages between ABE and public school adult secondary education; (5) encourage a sense of accountability on the part of correctional educators; (6) improve the status of correctional educators; (7) employ correctional educators as consultants in public schools. Also included are 23 references and suggested readings. (LY)
