Final Report. An Evaluation of the Title I Program Conducted at the Michigan Training Unit, Michigan Department of Corrections, Ionia, Michigan, 1977-1978.
Mack, Faite R-P.
This is an evaluation of the Title I Program of the Michigan Training Unit, a program designed to provide compensatory education in basic skills for young adult male prisoners. The evaluation provides information to enable decision-makers to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the program and considers whether the program fulfilled requirements established by funding legislation. Information collected concerning student demography, achievement, self-concept, and attitudes is tabulated, as is an inventory of staff, administrator and teacher awareness of Federal guidelines and local Title I programs. Questionnaires used in gathering most of the data are reprinted along with the numerical compilations of responses. Recommendations are made concerning goal delineation, criterion-reference testing, social development of students, evaluation of the pre-high school component, creation of a system to educate staff about government guidelines for Title I programs, improvement of affirmative action efforts, and restructuring of the organizational system.
