Relatively Strong (Needs improvement) Weak (Needs major improvement) No Record

Note. The levels of strength for these tables were determined by two or more of the following criteria:

  • The number of programmes available.

  • The structure or format of the programme.

  • The prison programmes in comparison with programmes in the wider society.

The findings summarised in the tables led to the following conclusions:

1. The different approaches to educational reform, as posited by Miller, do not determine the approach to prison education. It is evident that both categories of countries have education plans or project approaches that are actively involved in prison education. In addition, countries with low participation rates were found throughout both groups. The explanation for this may be that even though these countries embarked upon different strategies for educational reform, there was never an application of these strategies to prison education and thus both categories of countries basically had similar approaches to prison education.
