Hi Chloecan, Look in the White pages for the address of the Department of Corrections and contact them for information. When you make your application inform them about the subjects that you wish to teach and the hours you are prepared to volunteer. They possibly will send you an Information package about teaching in a prison environment and they may have special dates when they have formal training days for lay people i.e., Non Prison Staff. You could also Google 'Working as a teacher in a Prison Environment in (Your State/Country). Contact the education Officer at the nearest prison to where you live for additional information and/or an Information Pack. I have worked as an educator in both Adult and Children's detention centres. There are a range of formalities to be undertaken before you would be offered a position even as a volunteer. Such as: Character screening, ID Photos. Interview, Details of your training experience and so on. Best wishes for your future.

I was thinking of doing the same - (computer tuition) but not finding any information about doing it in England. Are you in the USA? A large forum which would help is http://www.prisontalk.com - they even have a specific section for your question but most people on the board are involved with prison systems in the USA.

YES!! It is ridiculous the luxuries the most prisons afford inmates. Every state and the federal goverment should take a page out of the book of Sheriff Joe in AZ. His inmates are required to work 16 hour days. The eat hot dags and pb & j everyday. He had taken away T.V. until he was told that it was federally mandated that he must provided select cable channels for the inmates, so they get the disney chanel and the weather chanel so they knew how hot it is going to be the next day for work.
Rusty Originally Answered: Do you think that prisons should be more of a punishment?
I agree that prisons should not be considered hotels. Prisoners should be put back on the "chain-gang" concept. They should be forced to work prison farms in which vegetables are grown to be provided to low income families and homeless shelters. Many prisoners that are currently serving time are doing so because they know no other life. Many were mental patients and were put out onto the streets when the states cut funding to mental institutes. Many are there because they have no place else to be and it is the easy way to get shelter and three square meals a day, free medical coverage and an education that costs them nothing. Quite a few people in this country don't want to work for anything. That is the leading Prisons should be made so bad that people do not want to return to them and are willing to get a job to support themselves. But on the other side of the coin its better that we pay for them to be in prison than on the streets and stealing the things that hard working people own.
