5 minutes on… The benefits of longitudinal studies and consistent data for prisoner education in Australia with Ron Wilson

Longitudinal studies overseas resulted in an understanding of the relationship between positive prisoner education programs and a productive life post-release. The data collected led to a political will to address education needs in prisons, and to significant funding.
In this 5 minute presentation, Dr Ron Wilson explains why ACEA hopes consistent data about prisoner education across the states and territories in Australia will be an outcome of the Parliamentary Inquiry into the Importance of Adult Literacy.
