Opportunities to Learn More

February 7, 2013 by Anna M. Clausen in Education
The Khan Academy is an online education resource that is absolutely FREE to everyone. Salman Khan is an MIT and Harvard graduate who began making tutorial videos inside a small closet in his home a few years and they quickly went viral on the web. Since then, he has been featured on “60 Minutes,” done the cover of Time magazine, and has received praise from leaders around the world. The Academy is a non-profit that is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Their mission is to help educate the world and is available FREE to everyone.

Since inmates in the FBOP are not permitted to have direct internet access we suggest that you speak to your institutional administrators or Education Depart-ment Director about burning all of the Academy’s 2000 lessons onto DVD’s for use by the general popu-lation within your facility. These materials are not copyrighted so they can be distributed and shared freely. The only cost to implement this education program would be the purchase of blank discs, and that’s minimal. Who is going to say “No” to free educational materials at a time when the FBOP budgets are stretched to their absolute limit? Make your suggestion or submit a written proposal TODAY.
