A Resource and Reference Guide for Education and Leisure Activity Managers and Personnel in the Federal Prison System. Education Handbook.
Federal Prison System, Washington, DC. Education Services Section.
The purpose of this guide is to help the Bureau of Prisons develop programs based on a balanced philosophy that recognizes that punishment, deterrence, incapacitation and access to opportunities for self-improvement are all valid purposes of incarceration. The Bureau's basic objectives are, first, to provide a safe and humane environment for inmates and staff; and second, to increase the number of inmates who achieve a successful adjustment upon release to the community by offering offenders a wide variety of opportunities for work, job training, education and counseling. Designed for Education Supervisors and Assistant Supervisors, the guide covers every area of a manager's responsibility as it relates to the operation of an Education Department. It deals with a wide range of topics, from administrative procedures and program evaluation through specific components such as legal libraries and leisure activities. In addition to being a resource book, it can also serve as a "how to do it" guide for education managers who wish to establish meaningful programs. (Author/BP)
