Criminal Classes Summary

Criminal Classes: Offenders at School by Angela Devlin

This work examines the links between educational failure and future offending behaviour. It contains the stories of inmates' schooldays told in their own words as they try to answer the question "could anything have been done to prevent you being in custody now?" The book ends with suggestions on action schools might take towards redressing social, cultural and educational disadvantage and intervening to help limit future offending behaviour.

Criminal Classes Reviews

'If you are in any doubt about the links between poor education, crime and recidivism, read it':Marcel Berlins The Guardian.'This book is of considerable public importance on a subject which calls for attention. I believe that in prison life the status of education needs to be raised for the high percentage of offenders who have failed at school and come from broken families, and are soon to be discharged into the community':Sir Stephen Tumim, former HM Chief Inspector of Prisons
