High Desert State Prison Donates 100 Computers to Lassen County Schools

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

High Desert Warden M. Eliot Spearman presents Lassen County Superintendent of Schools Patty Gunderson with refurbished computers for local students

High Desert State Prison recently donated 100 computers for use in the schools throughout Lassen County.

After receiving the computers and monitors the Office of Education replaces the hard drives and upgrades each one before it is placed in a classroom or computer lab in the county.

“This is a win for our students because the cost to replace hard drives are so much less than purchasing brand new computer systems,” explains Lassen Superintendent of Schools Patty Gunderson.

    Tell gubner Brown to quit his crap with the train to nowhere and give all the money to our schools. Then they won’t have to “accept a donation” of the prison garbage.
    Our schools should have BRAND NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART COMPUTERS!!!!

    I think the slant is the fact that the prisoners were given these computers to use before the children in our schools. What’s wrong with that picture?

      Hi Kevin, I wrote the story and did not intend to slant it either way. Not even sure which way you are thinking it’s slanted? LOL Anyway, no slanting was intended. 🙂 -Jeremy

      I don’t see a “slant”, but I do see a lot of information missing, such as were the computers reburbished by prisoners? If it was prisoners who rebuilt them, I think it’s a win-win. Prisoners get some job skills and the schools get upgraded computers. But it would be interesting to know.

      RoseMarie Mucklin The second line of the story reads “After receiving the computers and monitors the Office of Education replaces the hard drives and upgrades each one before it is placed in a classroom or computer lab in the county.” 🙂

      Susanvillestuff.com – OK, it mentions the Office of Education, but it doesn’t mention the prisoners doing the work. So it may be clear to you, but the article is NOT clear at all.

      Can’t be much clearer there lol “After receiving the computers and monitors the OFFICE OF EDUCATION REPLACES THE HARD DRIVES AND UPGRADES EACH ONE before it is placed in a classroom or computer lab in the county.” As you point out the story DOES NOT mention the inmates doing the work, because they didn’t do it. 🙂

      Susanvillestuff.com – You know, I’m a fairly literate person, but your story is still not clear. What then does the the High Desert Prison have to do with the story or the donation to the schools? And why is the warden of the prison shown “donating” them. Contrary to your assertion , it is NOT clear at all.

      RoseMarie did you click on the headline and read the story? High Desert Prison donated 100 old computers and the Lassen County Office of Education received them, changed hard drives and is putting them in classrooms. It is VERY simple. 🙂

      OK, I see journalism is not your forte. Nowhere is the word “old” used in the article like you do above. That makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. On the other hand, if a prison can donate old computers instead of refurbishing them for their own use and giving prisoners some job skills, something is still wrong with the picture. I’m done here. This is just getting silly.
