Model of Adult Career Education in Corrections.
Ryan, T. A.; And Others
The model was designed to provide a guide for systematic planning, implementation, and evaluation of adult career education in correctional settings, utilizing a systems approach. It consists of seven chapters and a flowchart presenting seven major functions which must be carried out: (1) establishing a conceptual framework, (2) setting up an information processing system and analyzing data to describe the actual correctional setting, (3) assessing needs for adult career education in such a setting, (4) establishing management subgoals and objectives to implement major goals, (5) formulating a management plan to optimize delivery of education, (6) implementing the programs,and (7) evaluating the delivery system and the programs. The flowchart is a graphic representation of the functions. A numerical coding system relates the flowchart to the narrative specifications for the model's functions. Directions for using the model are provided. Appended material (59 pages) includes: a glossary of terms; a bibliography; a list of career education-related periodicals; information on the development of the model; names of resource personnel, conference and seminar participants, national advisory committee members, and design committee members; and a subject index.
