This preliminary needs assessment study conducted at the Kaki Bukit Centre (KBC) Prison School in Singapore provides a systematic examination of what stakeholders perceive as needs to be addressed. Two needs assessment surveys were administered to correctional educators and prison inmates at KBC, respectively. Based on the responses of the stakeholders, challenges faced by both correctional educators and inmates were presented and recommendations for the planning and implementation of effective educational programs and services in prison settings were made.
