Parker, Edward A.
Journal of Correctional Education, v41 n3 p140-46 Sep 1990
Interviews with 301 (of 375) inmates determined levels of educational attainment while in prison. Self-esteem as measured by Rosenberg's scale and self-efficacy and social competence as measured by the Adolescent Problems Inventory. Relationships between education and either self-esteem or competence were significant. Length of time served may have confounded the relationship between education and efficacy. (SK)
