Falling forward: Lessons learned from critical reflection on an evaluation process with a prisoner reentry program


Journal Article

A formative evaluation of life-skills learning modules with men and women in a residential prisoner reentry program where careful attention was given to voice, power, and engagement, is described and analyzed. The author reflects on the evaluation process through the critical theory lens of “being self-critical can illuminate how practices maintain oppressive conditions.” Questions about whose voices remained dominant and whose power was suppressed are discussed. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company, and the American Evaluation Association.
