Alternative Schooling within Career Technical Educational Centers.
Cordonnier, Gene
Cultural factors that influence 14- to 17-year-old boys in southwest Ohio to become involved in the juvenile correctional system include the following: (1) lack of a structured family environment; (2) lack of empathy; (3) self-centeredness; and (4) a misplaced sense of masculinity. Treatment of the whole person in correctional residential facilities ought to fuse behavior modification and education. Although not a panacea for rehabilitating all youths, experiential learning programs have been found to have a calming effect on some. In Ohio, these two programs designed to provide "hands on" alternative education for delinquent boys were developed by the Upper Valley Junior Vocational School (UVJVS) in cooperation with the David L. Brown Youth Center and the West Central Juvenile Detention Center: agriculture science training developed in 1994 and machine technology skills training developed in 1996. (The goals, program descriptions and appendices comprise almost of the report. There are these three lengthy appendices related to the David L. Brown Youth Center: a program description; a welcoming letter given to new residents; and a sample program schedule. Also appended is the agreement between the UVJVS and the West Central Juvenile Detention Center.) (AJ)
