Secure, correctional facilities house and offer educational programming to diverse populations, which may include individuals with assorted learning disabilities from mild to severe. From January 12 – 14, the LINCS Community will host the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and Five Keys Charter School, which provides education services to San Francisco and Los Angeles’ County Jail, for a special discussion on Adult Learning Disability Populations within Secure, Correctional Facilities.
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.
