for vocational education at the penal complex as another
example of the Legislature's concern for penal reform.
Ford suggested the place penal reform should begin is with
the economically and socially disadvantaged.
Society needs to recognize "that the way the system is set
up, some people are always placed at a disadvantage," Ford
said. 'The system needs to be changed to give all people equal
opportunities to advance, educationally and economically."
Lee Jett, director of the Federal Youth Center at
Englewood, Colo., also stressed the need for community
involvement in penal reform.
The public must quit trying to pretend that penitentiaries
are alien to their way of life, he said. For example, the youth
center at Englewood is adjacent to a new residential
subdivision, it is left off of maps developers have of the area. '
Jett also said that one thing always to be remembered
about penal reform, is that no matter how comfortable an
institution can be, when men lose their freedom, it's no fun.
Looking for viable alternatives to incarceration is the
direction penal reform should be heading, he said.

will be geared toward a managerial and social science
application of mathematics.
It is the first of a two-semester sequence, the second of
which will deal with linear algebra.
