Costelloe, Anne; Warner, Kevin – London Review of Education, 2014

Prison education is a fundamental human right and contributes to democratisation processes in Latin American countries.

Conditions are further exacerbated by structural causes such as…

Participating in higher-level study offers recognised benefits both for the student and the prison and has been proven to reduce reoffending.
