If you know of studies that provide support for a minimum number of
instructional hours per week, I'll pass it along to our Australian

I met Susan Dawe in Denver. She is an Aussie researcher and she is
looking for some research or articles to back up a position on adult
literacy. Please see the email below and let me know if you can point me
to any pertinent research.

No progress on my VET & prisoners chapter yet as Managing Director thought
there was no argument in the chapter (he is an economist and needs an
argument for every piece of writing) so the General manager who is a
labour market economist is reviewing it.
Anyway I have just had an interesting query which you might be able to
help me with.
Apparently prisoners in Victoria are guaranteed 4 hours a week of
education and training but are not getting it due to overcrowding etc.
Corrections Victoria would like to present an argument that there is a
minimum number of hours a week required to teach literacy i.e. a
theoretical benchmark (based on pedagogical issues or other reasons). Do
you know of any research or any benchmarks for prisoners on how many hours
a week are required to teach literacy?
