Transition to the Community, Prison Literacy Programs and Factors Which Lead to Success in the Community (1997)

This is a report of a research conducted by the John Howard Society at five prisons in Manitoba and Saskatchewan during the spring of 1997. Five teachers and fifty-seven male students participated in the study which sought to describe what occurs in prison schools, reasons for prison school attendance, school-related goals upon release, and self-identified factors influencing success of these goals. Information for the report was gathered through various methods including: existing literature, interviews with teachers, informal observations in classrooms, focus group sessions with students, and personal interviews with students.
