McDonnell, John C.
As the second volume in a three part study evaluating vocational training provided in occupational institutions, this document is concerned with the administrative and legislative development of vocational training in correctional institutions, and with the characteristics of the 25 projects covered by this study. The basic aspects considered for each project include: (1) the characteristics of its overall training program, (2) the characteristics of the vocational training courses it provided, and (3) the characteristics of the institutional environment in which these projects operated. The data collected for this report were obtained through interviews and record reviews at the national, regional, state, and local levels. Related volumes one and three are available as VT 014 175 and VT 014 177 respectively. (Author/GEB)
