Vocational Education in Corrections: An Interpretation of Current Problems and Issues. National Study of Vocational Education in Corrections. Technical Report No. 1.
Jones, Joan Simon
This review and synthesis of the literature on correctional vocational education includes historical documents, recent surveys and reports, journal articles, dissertations, and speeches and presentations which were located by computer-assisted and manual searches of these data bases: Abstracts of Instructional and Research Materials in Vocational and Technical Education, Educational Resources Information Center, National Technical Information Services, Comprehensive Dissertation Abstracts, and National Criminal Justice Reference Service. To describe the state-of-the-art of vocational education in corrections, the review discusses surveys, reports, programs, and models which address these three "charges" made by researchers and program planners to the educational community and the community at large: to defuse the psychology of retribution, to establish job market-relevant, community-based vocational education programs, and to establish effective in-prison programs with high quality program design and delivery, needs assessment, and evaluation. Listings give the references that were reviewed and additional references that provide relevant discussion. (This and two other technical reports are included in the final report, ED 151 569.) (YLB)
