Don’t waste a sentence

50% of prisoners in UK jails can’t read or write. On release they are twice as likely as other prisoners to re-offend.
The solution? Use the time in prison to teach a prisoner to read. The method? Train prisoners who can read to teach another prisoner on a one -to -one basis. The results? Astounding. Building confidence both to mentor and pupil, lowering re-offending rates, saving taxpayers money, and benefitting the wider community by reducing crime.
The estimated cost of the scheme: £98 a prisoner
