Corrections & Higher Education Monograph. [A Compilation of Papers Presented at the National Conference on Corrections & Higher Education (Columbus, Ohio, November 21-23, 1991)].
Blair, Robert, Ed.; Jones, Wes, Ed.
This monograph contains nine papers that examine appropriate education for prison inmates and training and education for correctional staff. Discussions include an argument that social class stratification plays a role in prison education; the observation that higher education's role is vital for prisoner reintegration into society; and a plea to eliminate the threats to prison education, such as the elimination of Pell Grants for prisoners and lack of support among correctional employees. Also provided is an overview of the impetus that historical and legal factors have played in upgrading educational requirements for correction personnel. The following papers are included: "Education: Correction's Vital Link to the Real World" (J. Michael Quinlan); "Mass Education and the Legitimation of Prison Higher Education" (Raymond Jones); "The Role of Post-Secondary Education and Correction" (Helen Corrothers); "The Correctional Crisis and the Economics of Post-Secondary Correctional Education" (Jon M. Taylor); "The Bacone College/Oklahoma Department of Corrections On-Site Post-Secondary Educational Program" (Dave Norfolk); "The Correctional Practicum: Invitational Education in Participation, Self-Awareness and Professionalism" (F. Lamarr Crowe and John Zappala); "Public Safety and Justice Careers: A Virginia University's Program for Professionalism" (Paul Keve); "A Study of the Role of the Student-Teacher Relationship within Correctional Education" (Daniel W. Lawrence); and "Future Opportunities of Symbiosis in Relating Higher Education to Correctional In-Service Training" (P. Christopher Menton). Most papers include references. (GLR)
