The Effectiveness of Prison Education Programs.
Linden, Rick; Perry, Linda
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v6 n4 p43-57 Sum 1982
Reviews research studies on the effectiveness of prison education programs. Most evaluations show substantial improvements in learning, but this does not necessarily affect post-release employment and recidivism. The literature suggests that programs must be intensive, establish an alternative community within the prison, and offer post-release services. (Author/JAC)
