The new piece explains how prisoners have been provided with tablets that connect to the company’s family learning software. In comparison with the mixed success seen with job skill training, the report states that the inclusion of a parallel learning program for prisoners’ children has led to quantifiable reductions in recidivism.

Improvement in child literacy is seen as an important part of tackling a number of social issues, such as crime, teen parenthood, joblessness, and community violence. The new report shows government agencies and non-profits how The Family Learning Company’s software solutions are having a significant impact.
The US has some of the highest levels of recidivism (re-offending and being returned to prison) in the world. According to Harvard Political Review, two out of three former prisoners are rearrested within three years of being released, with 50% of those being returned to the prison system.
Correctional facilities have sought to address this issue with job skill training programs, which are designed to prepare prisoners for a return to society. These have had mixed levels of success. As The Family Learning Company’s new report explains, one correctional facility deployed an innovative new approach.
Using tablets issued to them during their orientation, inmates were able to connect to family learning software, which taught them basic reading and writing skills. The children of the men were also able to see their progress, which encouraged them to take responsibility for their learning. As the company points out, almost every inmate now takes their tablet with them on release, and recidivism rates among those involved have dropped significantly.
