ABSTRACT
This article reviews the 30 year history of the evolution of a correctional educational literacy model. It is based on the author's personal experience as a resource teacher, a federal monitor, an auditor for CEA and numerous visits to correctional education programs across the US. The article is also based on a review of a number of important publications and studies in adult and correctional education. The model is not definitive because literacy and correctional education continue to evolve.
