Adult Basic Education Learning Center 310 Project. Final Report July 1983-June 1984.
Missouri State Dept. of Corrections and Human Resources, Jefferson City.
An educational research and demonstration program was implemented in learning centers at five correctional institutions across Missouri. Included in the demonstration project were the following programs: a prescriptive learning system that served 253 students; a program in attitude, basic, and life skills; an ex-offender program that involved 20 to 25 hours of instruction in career planning and job-search methods; an educational-parole referral system to assist ex-inmates in entering educational programs in their home communities; a tutorial program in which inmates moved about individual learning centers, assisting other inmates on a one-to-one basis; and an assistant inmate teachers program in which inmates with 60 or more hours of college credit were recruited to be assistant teachers in learning center programs. Data from pre- and posttests administered to the program participants and from followup of participants in the ex-offender and referral programs indicated that the whole person concept can be effective in correctional education. (The 11 appendixes to this report include sample forms used in the various components of the demonstration project as well as pre- and posttest data from the prescriptive learning, attitudinal training, and ex-offender components of the program.)
