Literacy in B.C. Corrections
Authors: Audrey M Thomas
This project was designed to determine the experiences of offenders in adult correctional facilities in the province in relation to their literacy needs, and to discover where and how those needs were being met. The author also makes recommendations for future action in relation to literacy programs.
To prepare the report Audrey Thomas interviewed inmates and obtained information from questionnaires sent to five selected groups: correctional centre directors; adult basic education administrators in the corrections field; literacy/ABE instructors in B.C. Corrections; halfway community agencies; and community literacy groups.
