Eggleston, Carolyn
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v3 n4 p15-17 Win 1995

Youth are diagnosed, and then traditional content and methodology is administered in settings determined by structure and policy, and not the needs of the students. Suggests reclaiming the rich history of proactive prison education. (Author/JPS)
