Abstract

A goal in correctional educational programming has been to aid inmates in their efforts to attain the GED. Math has often been an overlooked subject in GED inmate education. In the Illinois Department of Corrections, School District #428, a state-wide, sequential core curriculum has been implemented to help inmates acquire math skills beyond the survival skill level. The staff at Menard Correctional Center has devised a competency-based GED math program. This article outlines the program and lists available commercial materials which have increased the efficiency of the GED math program at Menard.
