The Family Learning Company, which was founded by Jon Bower and Peter Dublin, Ed.D., now provides the tools needed to increase prison literacy rates and reduce recidivism. With more than half of adult inmates in US prisons unable to read above a fourth-grade level, this platform can help correctional facilities focus on developing basic literacy skills. reading before moving on to HSE level material.
Whether or not they are ready to find work, more than 95% of the million and a half people held in American prisons will be released at some point. However, the majority of offenders have a low level of education – between 35 and 40% of state prison inmates do not have a high school diploma. This has a direct impact on offenders’ ability to find meaningful employment. One study showed that participation in prison education, including academic and vocational programs, was associated with a more than 40% reduction in recidivism.
The Family Learning Company’s software platform offers thousands of learning activities to share and master. The open, collaborative model works for inmates as well as families, allowing inmates to collaborate in discussion and assignment groups.
