Emphasis is placed on the inmates' ability to work as a team member, think critically, and develop marketable skills. The bureau is also responsible for distance education and the Corrections Distance Learning Network; wellness education; teacher certification and in-service training; placement and transition through Project Re-Connect; and program and instructional development.|
