Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Correctional Academic Education: A Qualitative Inquiry of Quality, Value, and Effectiveness from the Educator Perspective
by Currier, Michelle L., Ph.D., Nova Southeastern University, 2018, 183; 10749543
Abstract (Summary)

This study attempted to capture and describe the lived experiences of correctional academic teachers who provide educational services in facilities in the northeastern region of the United States through qualitative phenomenological inquiry. This study strove to provide a deeper understanding of correctional teachers’ perceptions concerning the mission, value, efficacy, and importance of the work that they perform, as well as the resulting approaches they take, in their academic classrooms. Through phenomenological data analysis, the study assessed teachers’ perceptions of the rehabilitative ideal, as well as the role of correctional education program offerings within a rehabilitative framework.
