How education changes prisoners patterns and lives
21 March 2016
I work in the Private Security Training Industry here in Victoria Australia. There is an increasing shortfall of personnel due to the a serious problem with re-offending of 18 -24 group in this State. It is an issue that has been officially acknowledged by the Victoria Ombudsman who recently recommended "a justice re-investment" in the education of prisoners. This documentary, solidly supported by pre and post prison term evidence,shows how proper education changes lives for the better with a "flow on" effect into the community with lower levels of re-offending as a testament to its effectiveness. I found that as I watched the film my initial skepticism vaporised as I watched the prisoners who had attended the Peace Education Program describe the way it had positively impacted their lives inside. Interviews with some of them after their release confirmed that the benefits did not stay behind the prison walls. I would recommend anyone to see this film regardless of profession and rejoice in its testament to the human spirit and the power of change.
