“Prisons need to follow what other educational institutions have been doing”
This article explores ideas heard at the final panel of Prisoner Learning Alliance’s 2020 conference, bringing together different voices in prison education to discuss some of the challenges and innovations we might see in the future.
The Prisoner Learning Alliance is a network that brings together organisations and individuals with expertise in prison education.
Our vision is:
To provide expertise that informs prison education priorities, policies and practices
We're advocating for better access to digital technology in prisons
We publish reports and briefings on prison education
We monitor and lobby parliament to improve prison education
PLA is chaired by Professor Tom Schuller.
