New Doors for Newgate.
Osborne, Thomas J.
Quotes and writings of students involved at the Federal Youth Center in Ashland, Kentucky are used in this report to show how they feel about the Newgate Project at the Center and about a course called Personal Development. Newgate has increasingly stimulated the prison environment in a positive manner to enhance the confinement situation of the inmates. While Project Newgate is geared to prepare students academically for post-high school education after release from custody, the course in personal development seeks to correct deficiencies in basic human social values, character, ethics, morals, and standards by providing experiences for individuals and groups in interaction. The students highly approve of the opportunities offered to them in both the Newgate Project and the Personal Development course. A nine-page bibliography on criminology is included. (CL)
