Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
Statisticians have noted that the prisons of NATIONSNAME are filled disproportionately by the uneducated poor. Many are now debating the advantages of offering education to inmates during their sentences.
I’ve encountered with many choices
1. “It’s astonishing that we didn’t think of this before,” admits Junior Education Minister Melissa Gutenberg. “If we provide employment-oriented and life-skill education opportunities, we can turn these crooks into productive citizens! Getting jobs will get them out of a life of crime, and keep them out of prison.”
2. “That’s absolutely ridiculous!” yells retired prison guard Nelson Fitzgerald. “Criminals are in prison to serve time! What sort of punishment or deterrent is a free evening class? If we educate them and then let them back out into the world, we’ve just created smarter criminals! Make prisons tougher, not cushier… You want to teach these scum a lesson? I got a cat o’ nine tails right here…”
3. “Look, lack of formal education doesn’t mean criminals are ignorant, just that they have specialised skills,” observes primary schoolteacher Bob Dlamini, handing out ‘You’re Special Too!’ stickers to everyone in the room. “Rather than starting from scratch, why not recognise what skills they have and try to find them suitable work? Murderer? Put that killer instinct to use in the army. Arsonist? Get that knowledge of fire into supervising controlled forest fires. Burglar? Re-purpose those skills in climbing and fine motor control into telephone line repair. It’s all about valuing people for who they actually are.”
4. Dismiss the issue
Option 1. sounds nice so I choose it.
The result saids ‘Disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects.’
