Wherever socially immature students are educated, the traditional distinction between children and adults becomes blurred. Educators are concerned about whether they should focus on learners' immature skills, or on their "grown up" bodies and often intense life experiences. A compendium presents summary statements from larger works or fields of study. This compendium addresses the concern about whether confined students should be treated like children or adults. It includes a general context; salient quotes from classic works of pedagogy (the education of children), andragogy (the education of adults), and adult education in corrections; an extrapolated conclusion proposes how correctional educators might interpret these various ideas. The author's hope is that the passages contained herein will stimulate interest and dialogue about the connection between pedagogy and andragogy in the correctional milieu.
