Experimental Training Program in Adult Basic Education in Correctional Institutions. Final Report.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Education Research and Development Center.
The purpose of this program was two-fold: to develop a model of adult basic education in corrections and to provide specialized training to selected individuals in adult basic education in corrections. Model development was accomplished through three activities: (1) needs assessment, (2) goals definition, and (3) model synthesis. Assessment of needs for adult basic education in corrections was accomplished by survey of institutions to determine discrepancies between existing programs and ideal programs. Goals of adult basic education in corrections were defined in a National Work Conference. A Model of Adult Basic Education in Corrections was synthesized from two independently developed models. Training of selected leaders in corrections in adult basic education was accomplished in two 24-day seminars. The training program aims called for development of knowledge and skills and fostering of positive attitudes relating to adult education in corrections. Results of pre- and post-tests against program objectives indicate that the aims were achieved at criterion levels. (Author)
