MDTA Experimental and Demonstration Findings No. 3: Manpower Development and Training in Correctional Programs. Final Report.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
The capabilities of Title I of the Manpower Development and Training Act have been used for several years to fund experimental and demonstration projects for the prerelease training of prisoners. Four conferences on Manpower Development and Training in correctional institutions were sponsored to bring together the basic groups of people charged with responsibility in prisoner rehabilitation, and to disseminate the significant results of experimental, demonstration, and research projects. This document contains a full report of the first conference plus significant sections of the later three. Sample topics of major addresses include: (1) "The Federal Role in Correctional Programs," (2) "Education and Training Versus Maintenance and Other Prison Work Programs," (3) "Job Development and Placement of the Ex-Offender," and (4) "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society." Panel presentations included: (1) "The Role of Federal Agencies--Sources of Funding," (2) "Characteristics of the Inmate Presentations," and (3) "Evaluation of Programs." Workshop discussions were centered on: (1) "Counseling Problems," (2) "Education and Training Problems," and (3) "Job Development and Placement." (GEB)
