Vocational Education in Correctional Institutions (New Brunswick, New Jersey, June 16-June 28, 1968). Report. National Seminar.
Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ.
The purpose of the seminar was to provide selected participants with a broader vision of the importance of vocational education in the rehabilitation of their charges. The program was organized with the "impulsive" offender in mind, or those presumed to be more easily rehabilitated. The advancing cost and increasing number of people committed to such custodial care, along with the high rate of recidivism, brings into focus a great need for new approaches to rehabilitation or, at least, the inclusion of other considerations in existing programs. Such additional inclusions would be socioeconomic, psychological and anthropological, as well as technical. This document is the initial report of the first national effort at getting to some of the solutions to the problems facing this specialized field of education. The twenty-six papers included present a balance between theory and practice and are authored by a staff selected on the basis of varying backgrounds of education and experience. Titles of some of the papers included follow: "The Opportunity for Vocational Education in Correctional Institutions,""Similarities and Differences of In-School and Correctional Institutional Vocational Education,""The Psychology of Our Various Publics to the Policeman and His Role in Society,""The Use of Team Teaching,""A Pilot Program in Cooperative Vocational Education," and "Implications for Vocational Education Teacher Education."
