Mattucci, Robert F.; Johnson, Meghan W.
Journal of Correctional Education, v54 n1 p15-18 Mar 2003
A plumbing program teaches minimum-security inmates technical skills, decision making, motivation, and teamwork. In New York, 80 inmates have completed the program and 2 have become apprentices upon release. The course, combined with substance abuse treatment and high school equivalency, seeks to counteract recidivism with practical life skills. (SK)
