Education, Vocation and Prison Reformation

A recent joint study by criminologists from five Australian universities has revealed the effectiveness of vocational and educational programs in prison reformation.  The study looked at data of more than 10,000 prisoners released in 2010–11 and compared it to data in 2016 showing which of these prisoners were back in prison.

One of the researchers, Dr Jesse Cale, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at UNSW joined Sean Britten to discuss the findings.
