Johnson, Richard L.; And Others
Based on a program developed in Texas, this guide was developed to help correctional educators coordinate educational services in the community with adult education program providers in order to provide appropriate programs for parolees and probationers. Following an introduction that explains terms of the criminal justice system and responsibilities of the Texas criminal justice system and the Texas Education Agency, the guide is organized in three chapters. Chapter 1 describes the general characteristics of offenders and of correctional education and suggests types of programs and strategies that are more likely to be useful in dealing with offenders. Chapter 2 discusses coordination of community adult education with criminal justice agencies. It includes descriptions of the roles of various agencies and methods for referring, enrolling, and tracing students. Chapter 3 describes various correctional education delivery models being used in Texas and summarizes their strengths. A 21-item bibliography is included in this chapter. Thirteen appendixes provide the following: information on adult education and correction programs in Texas, names of contact persons, and sample forms for referral and enrollment, transcript requests, and attendance verification.
