Survey of state correctional education systems : analysis of data from 1992 field test by Rita J Kirshstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication represents a basic analysis of state correctional education data collected in 1992. It presents six summary tables that capture key data collected in 1992-1993 for adult and juvenile facilities as well as profiles of the states that responded to the survey. Forty-three states responded to the survey and one was eliminated because of missing data on key variables. Almost all states offer Adult Basic Education and ged preparation courses, and 23 of the 40 states offering such education offer it at every facility. An average of 62% of facilities within states offered high school coursework, with 10 states offering high school coursework in all facilities. An average of 69% of correctional institutions offered some type of vocational education, and vocational education was offered at every facility in 10 states. Only an average of 39% of correctional facilities within each state offered special education, but life and social skills training was offered at an average of 79% of correctional institutions within the states. Most inmates were enrolled in Adult Basic Education or ged instruction. Thirty-nine states responded to the survey about juvenile correctional education, but only 36 states provided a complete set of data. Almost all juvenile facilities offer elementary and secondary academic instruction, ged preparation, special education, and life and social skills training. Vocational education is offered at an average of 86% of juvenile institutions within a particular state. Appendixes contain profiles of education in adult and juvenile facilities. (Sld)

Addressed in the individual sections of the guide are the following topics: what entrepreneurship is and why it is important, where entrepreneurship education fits in, how instructors go about providing entrepreneurship education, whether minority entrepreneurs have special needs, how program providers assess entrepreneurship education programs, and where program providers can get help in developing and delivering entrepreneurship education programs. Appendixes, which compose more than half of the guide, include a selected annotated bibliography; model training program descriptions; an overview of minority business development centers and their role in enterprise development; excerpts from an entrepreneurship education program planning guide; directories of assistance agencies; a flow chart for planning and implementing a new venture; a list of characteristics of entrepreneurs; entrepreneur, success, and career quotients developed by the National Research Center for University and College Admissions; and guidelines for organizing to develop program and collaborative networks.

Take charge of your future : get the education and training you need by Donna Fowler( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Guide is designed for people who are incarcerated and for those on community supervision (probation and parole). It will help you get started--or continue--on the path to further education and training. Earning a high school credential, getting a certificate or license in a career technical field, or earning an associate or bachelor's degree will help you advance in your career, and, ultimately, life. You'll have more to offer employers, and you'll improve your chances of getting and keeping a good job--and earning promotions. You'll increase the amount of money you can earn, gain new skills, and make new contacts. In fact, 2010 U.S. Census figures show that people with higher levels of education earn more money. On average, people with four-year college degrees who worked full time earned $57,026 a year, compared to $44,086 for those with an associate degree, $34,197 for high school graduates, and $27,470 for high school dropouts. Continuing your education and training also can help strengthen your role in your family and community. This Guide is designed so that you can go through it from start to finish, or just read or print out the chapters that you need most. It covers the steps involved in setting goals, getting organized, finding employment, and pursuing your education, from a high school credential to a college diploma. It also provides advice about getting money to pay for your education. It won't answer every question, but it will direct you to resources where you can get your questions answered and get more information. The Guide does not provide information on services in specific states, but, wherever possible, it suggests a way to find that information. Appended are: (1) Sample Resume; (2) Correspondence Courses; and (3) "Incarcerated Individuals and Eligibility for Federal Student Aid," a U.S. Department of Education Information Flyer. A glossary is included. (Contains 6 footnotes.)

Adult College Completion Tool Kit by Michelle Tolbert( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This "Adult College Completion Tool Kit" is designed to connect state administrators and local practitioners to the strategies, resources, and technical assistance tools resulting from the Department's work. States can use this information to identify and implement state adult education leadership priorities, supported by federal "Adult Education and Family Literacy Act" ("aefla") funds, which encourage and support adult learners transitioning to college. The tool kit focuses on three areas: (1) Access: Academic preparation, financial resources, and other support students need to enroll in postsecondary education programs; (2) Quality: Evidence-based practices used by programs to ensure their services prepare students adequately for postsecondary education; and (3) Completion: Administrative policies and programmatic approaches to encourage student persistence in postsecondary education programs. In each chapter, strategies, resources, and tools relevant to adult education administrators and local adult education practitioners are highlighted. Each chapter also includes state and local examples illustrating how programs can improve the college transition process for their students. The tool kit concludes with a call to action. A summary list of the resources and tools described in the chapters and handouts for four target student populations--adult basic education students, incarcerated individuals, veterans, and high-skill immigrants--are provided in the appendix. Administrators and practitioners can use these handouts to encourage their students to meet the president's challenge and prepare for at least one year of postsecondary education or training. Appended are: (1) Tools and Resources; (2) Adult Learners: Five Steps to Prepare for College; (3) Individuals in Corrections: Five Steps to Prepare for College; (4) Veterans: Five Steps to Prepare for College; and (5) High-Skill Immigrant: Five Steps to Prepare for College. (Contains 2 figures and 4 footnotes.)
