The Department of Corrections (DOC) has identified the lack of  education credentials as a key factor in reoffending. In other words,  inmates with a high school diploma are less likely to reoffend upon  release as compared to inmates without a high school diploma.

The Department of Corrections (DOC) has identified the lack of  education credentials as a key factor in reoffending. In other words,  inmates with a high school diploma are less likely to reoffend upon  release as compared to inmates without a high school diploma. On the  average, 80 percent of the inmates without a high-school degree reoffend  as compared to 40 percent of inmates with a degree.

Programmers at DOC have identified two model programs:

  • The first program is called Education First; the  outcome of the program is passing the high-school equivalency  examination. This program has undergone extensive outcome evaluations,  and the success rate is figured to be 50 percent, which means that 50  percent of the inmates are successful in passing the high-school  equivalency examination.
  • The second program is General Education Development Preparatory program (GED Prep).  The outcome of this program is also passing the high-school equivalency  examination. The success rate of this program is identified as 80  percent, which means that 80 percent of the inmates that take this  program are successful in passing the high-school equivalency  examination.

The first program, Education First, costs $500 per pupil, and the second program, GED Prep, costs $5000 per pupil. Currently, the cost of incarceration is $32,000 per year.

Since the DOC has experienced decreasing budgets over the past 20 years, cost of programs is a very real concern.

Which of the two—Education First or the GED Prep  program should be adopted? Why? Analyze the scenario and the programs  and provide a logical justification for your answer considering:

  • The quality of the programs
  • The goal(s) and objective(s) of the programs
  • The policies’ design
  • The success rate of the programs
  • The cost considerations

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
