This set of thirty-four national standards for vocational education programs in corrections describes a set of ideal conditions in five areas of vocational education program operations within a correctional institution or system. By providing ideals to which existing conditions and objectives can be compared for evaluation purposes, the standards should help corrections personnel establish goals and develop guidelines for programs of occupational training. The standards are grouped into these five areas of program operations: curriculum and instruction (5), students (9), staff (5), organization and administration (11), and physical plant, equipment, and supplies (4). Standards for curriculum and instruction deal with program descriptions, objectives, and methods and procedures. Orientation, placement, evaluation, and follow-up are included under standards related to students. Standards involving staff have to do with selection and preparation, salary, professional growth, business and industry involvement, and evaluation. Organization and administration standards deal with the staffs of advisory boards, committees, and administraton; financial policies; community relations; planning, research, and development; evaluation; and discrimination. Standards dealing with physical plant, equipment, and supplies relate to planning and safety and health conditions. Discussion follows each standard.
