Would you like to be a peer reviewer on federal grants? OCTAE is seeking reviewers for a reentry education grant competition to be announced later this spring. We need individuals with expertise in correctional education, adult education, and/or community-based organization (CBO) program management/evaluation.

During summer 2015, reviewers will be expected to attend a reviewer training webinar, review and electronically score applications, and participate in panel review teleconferences. Reviewers will receive an honorarium. No travel is required.

Points of Discussion for Questions of Learning Disabilities in Corrections Classrooms

Hello All,

Rochelle and I are organizing an event in which we hope to encourage conversation around learning disabilities in corrections classrooms.  As part of these organizational efforts we'd like to solicit from our groups subjects for discussion.  What would you, as educators in the field, like to hear more about concerning learning disabilities within secure classrooms and the challenges faced by both students and their instructors in such an environment? Your contributions are much appreciated.
