Darren Broadus/ Class 3: Accountability

by Darren Broadus

97. Describe your thoughts on whether accountability logs would help, hinder, or provide indifferent to your opportunities for success upon release.

I think that an accountability log will help a lot because it can serve as a reminder as well.

98. In what ways will probation officers respond to efforts you’ve made at documenting your values, goals, and commitment to preparing for a law-abiding life upon release?

I’ve been on parole/probation before and they differ some could care less whether or not you’re trying to lead a better life and others are there to help.

99. Elaborate on ways that full transparency with regard to your prison adjustment through accountability logs can influence potential employers or support networks.

Well, transparency will show who you are, with nothing to hide, showing that this is who I once was and now this is whom I’ve become.  Transparency will allow them to see the transition.

100. Describe the role accountability logs played in their success:

Accountability logs not only serve as a reminder of responsibility but they also used the logs to measure progress, you can use the logs to see the progress you’ve made in your journey.

101. How do universities evaluate which students to admit?

GPA and work ethic.  The progress they’ve made prior to getting to the next level.

102. What information do creditors consider when deliberating on whether to extend loans?

Your payment method, your amount you’re requesting versus the amount that you’re brining in.

103. What governs investment decisions that people make?

Profit margins.

104. How do your responses to the above questions support or refute the value of accountability logs? 

My responses support the value of the accountability logs because there’s a pattern.  You can visually see the pattern of progress.  You can also see if you’re progressing IF you’re not holding yourself accountable, then you can make the necessary adjustments.
