Postsecondary Education Programs For Prisoners.
McCollum, Sylvia G.
Prisoners' need for education and training is universal. A review of past educational programs for prisoners, as well as current "inside" and "outside" college programs for prisoners demonstrates that the use of college resources as a program alternative differs from situation to situation and from country to country. How prisoners can reasonably be expected to become involved in postsecondary education during imprisonment, where, and when to use college resources as a program alternative also differs from situation to situation. Costs, facilities, post-release problems, and transfer of credits are problems also discussed. (Author/KE)
