Adebayo, Tobi Temitayo; Babalola, Adejoke Clara
Voices in Education, v5 p18-28 Aug 2019
The study provides information on the availability, types of learning activities, and perception of the female inmates towards these learning activities in prisons in Ondo, Osun, and Oyo States. The study adopted the survey design. Total enumeration sampling technique was used for the selection of the sample size. The study discovered that the level of participation of inmates in learning activities was low and the learning experiences were of low-level skills such as tailoring, hairdressing, farming, and home economics. This study has provided great insights to policy makers, adult educators, and all those who are involved in the rehabilitation of inmates in the study areas. This finding will enable these service providers to improve the kind of rehabilitation activities offered to prison inmates after their release in the study areas and elsewhere in Nigeria.
