Some dismal stats

Guess what proportion of prisoners are enrolled in literacy programmes? 25%? 15%? 10%? 5%?

The answer is 1.2%.

And now guess what proportion are enrolled in numeracy programmes?


Isn’t this Government meant to be about rehabilitation?

Shouldn’t a priority be getting prisoners able to read, write and count so they may one day be able to have the option of a job, rather than welfare or crime?
