Outreach Training Center Final Report.
Correctional Education Association.
The Correctional Education Association established the Outreach Training Center for Mandatory and Literacy Education. Its purpose was to collect and disseminate information on literacy programming, as well as to supply training and technical assistance to correctional educators working in the field of literacy. Press releases were sent to all major correctional and literacy organizations to request information on mandatory and literacy programming. This information was used to establish an archival research collection on mandatory and voluntary literacy programs. An analysis of recent trends in mandatory education was sent to each state director of adult and juvenile correctional education. Effective training was developed and disseminated in the areas of assessment and instructional techniques through workshops. A handbook on assessment and instructional techniques in literacy programs in correctional settings was published. (The nine-page final report is accompanied by these attachments: a 238-item bibliography of the information that was received on literacy programming; an article based on information provided by the states that provides information on implementation of mandatory educational programming; results of an evaluation of center compliance with federal regulations; an article that provides information on the current status of mandatory education and the legal basis for these programs; and workshop format and materials.)
