Great Idea and Program ,but....

There can be 10 x's more success stories if the Department of Corrections would just divert 1% or 2 % of its budget into education instead of strict incarceration. The DOC spends over One Billion dollars on keeping 22,000 inmates locked up, but only 2% of that budget goes towards inmate GED and Vocational training. ...and the situation gets worse every year. Corrections guards are hired every year but not a single teacher has been hired in 5 years. I applaud this program and hope that someone will wake up and see that improvements can occur. The taxpayers must remember that 95% of all inmates will be released within the next 5 years.
