Report and Recommendations on Vocational Education in Wisconsin Correctional Institutions. Public Hearing (Oshkosh, Wisconsin, November 16, 1988).
Wisconsin State Council on Vocational Education, Madison.
The Wisconsin Council on Vocational Education's seven recommendations, based on testimony given at a statewide public hearing at Oshkosh State Correctional Institute, are the following: (1) creation of an independent, cabinet-level corrections department; (2) establishment of an annual vocational, technical, and adult education scholarship for instructional materials to be awarded to an inmate at each correctional facility; (3) provision of inmate education through state contracts with vocational-technical colleges; (4) development of a state policy and a strategic plan for corrections education; (5) immediate study of access to training, funds spent on training, and economic value of training available to women as compared to that available to men in Taycheedah State Correctional Institution; (6) conduct a follow-up study to find out what percentage of a sample of former inmates are employed in occupations related to their training or are enrolled in further education; and (7) conduct a feasibility study about using televised instruction in all correctional facilities. In addition to those recommendations, the document contains similar conclusions reached by the council, testimony from 27 individuals, a list of Wisconsin correctional facilities, a list of council members and staff, and a reprint of the federal legislation that authorizes state vocational councils.
