Many individuals and agencies contributed to the production of this document. First and foremost, leaders in the field of education in correctional facilities are to be commended. We would specifically like to thank Katherine Byrnes, Audrey Harnden, Jo Anne Koren, Signe Nelson, Margaret Scripa, and Arleen Zucker for participating in an intensive writing session in Saratoga Springs, NY. Additionally, Katherine Byrnes provided her expertise on funding.
Of the Hudson River Center for Program Development, Inc., Kay S. Peavey, with the assis-tance of consultant Marci Manberg, pulled the entire document together. Barbara Smith, Ed.D., and Sarah Hughes contributed original writing and guidance to the project. Scott Jill confirmed the accuracy of technical information. Colleen Dowd and Gwen Bondi managed the printing process. Janet Atkins, of Hinterland Design, formatted the whole document.
Deborah Kantor applied her photographic talents to capturing the faces of the program. Special thanks are extended to the inmates and caregivers for permission to use their and their childrens photographs. Both Audrey Harnden and Margaret Scripa graciously invited us to visit their programs to take photos.
We would be remiss in overlooking the significant contributions of the Center for Family Resources, which laid the groundwork for this document. Through his vision of and dedica-tion to educational programming for incarcerated individuals, John London of the New York State Education Department (NYSED) facilitated the development of this document. Susan Henry, NYSEDs Even Start Statewide Coordinator, provided valuable feedback. Finally, Barbara Shay, team leader of NYSEDs Adult, Family, and Alternative Education, provided leadership to this and other important efforts to raise standards for all students.
Last, but by no means least, practitioners in the trenches of county correctional facilities are applauded for their dedication to providing educational opportunity to an often over-looked population.
