Private Company Saves Taxpayers Money and Prisoners Receive Education
1888PressRelease - more than 20,000 devices already contracted to prisons nationwide, Innertainment Delivery Systems LLC (IDS) is saving American taxpayers money while educating inmates.
NASHVILLE − Innertainment Delivery Systems LLC (IDS) has been contracted to provide more than 20,000 educational tablets to prisons and prison contractors across the country, thus helping those who are incarcerated gain desperately needed education. Quality education lowers inmates' chances of returning to prison and increases their ability to receive gainful employment on the outside while also saving the government and taxpayers money. These savings are represented in terms of both educational costs and paying for repeated incarceration (also known as recidivism).
"Education is the key to breaking the cycle of recidivism, which is good for both inmates and taxpayers," explained IDS President Dr. Turner Nashe, Jr. "Our learning systems enable inmates to take courses to prepare for the GED test, as well as vocational and college courses."
IDS (www.IDS615.com) supplies secured educational tablets that assist in a wide variety of curriculums, including college, adult basic education, life skills, financial literacy, employable skills, substance abuse treatment and reentry support.
For college students, the totally offline content distribution system contains college textbooks from all major publishers, video, dictionaries, calculators and other content for any sheriff's jail or Department of Corrections. It is the most secure system on the market. It took over 16 months and 8,000 coding hours to build.
IDS has also created other systems, such as an offline learning management system that allows inmates to learn at their own pace in their cells. Administrators can share syllabi, class modules, assignments, quizzes, and supplemental audio and video resources, and even do real-time grade reporting.
The third system developed by IDS is the online learning management system. This system has a myriad of custom development and integration options. It is the most cost-effective content management tool on the market and enables instructors to edit content or information quickly. This system comes with or without content, depending on customer requirements.
Tablets help facilities offer programs more efficiently and allow inmates to obtain skills by using tablet technology for educational purposes. IDS has over 12,000 active inmate students using its systems on any given day.
Nashe added, "Traditionally used textbooks become outdated and are difficult to replace. If an inmate is transferred among facilities, his or her education may be interrupted, depending on which textbooks and classes are available. Our system allows for the educational materials and courses to be current and learning to be continuous from facility to facility."
