December of last year was the first college course completion of the ground-breaking program in Idaho, Inside Out. Where the ICIO school teamed up with the University of Idaho to complete the first college class ever offered inside an Idaho prison. The story spread and recently KLEW TV and the Lewiston Morning Tribune came to ICIO to do stories about the program.
Inside Out, is new to Idaho but has been around some 20 years, is represented in over 40 other states and 7 different countries, and comes with some explicit security protocol, but it is very effective in creating “opportunities for people… to have transformative learning experiences that emphasize collaboration and dialogue.”
