The Organization of Correctional Education Services
Gehring, Thom
Journal of Correctional Education, v58 n4 p323-336 Dec 2007
There have been five major types of correctional education organizations over the centuries: Sabbath school, traditional or decentralized, bureau, correctional school district (CSD), and integral education. The middle three are modern organizational patterns that can be implemented throughout a system: Decentralized, bureau, and CSD. The historical pattern is that educators are gradually gaining some authority over correctional education decisions, but the process has been so slow and intermittent that it sometimes escapes observation. This article introduces the basic concepts of the topic, and includes a bibliography of the most salient contributions to the relevant literature. (Contains 5 figures.)
