Some people think sending criminals to prison is not an effective way to deal with them. Education and training are better. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
In many countries, prison the primary method to deal with criminals. However, treating offenders should rely on education and training rather than jailing for a period of time. Personally judging, an agreement is my point of view as many positive effects given by education and training compare with gaol.
Firstly, sentencing guilty individuals for a period of separation create many negative impacts on psychology and job opportunity in the future. In details, after being isolated for a period of time, criminals will become less communication.Also, a variety of criminals does not have enough required skill to apply an occupation. The time stays in prison, the less chance to sustain a moral life. Furthermore, the counts written on curriculum vitae of criminal prevent them to get an equal look of the society. As a result, offenders may have a variety of problems when they come back to society. Consequently, recidivism is an inevitable result, leading to the failure of prison system around the world.
Secondly, education and training may solve the initial problem of criminals as lack of knowledge to sustain their life morally. In details, mandatory education improves offender’s understanding to support them to keep up with the development of the general public. Also, the most important thing to reduce the recidivism rate is morality which only can perform by education. Furthermore, training adds the necessary skills for guilty individuals to apply a job after coming back to society. As a result, offenders will have more chance to change their life. Consequently, education and training not only reduce the recdivism ability, but also creating abundant labor resourse for society.
To conclude, recovering morally is possible for criminals, even in the worst case of crimes. Thus, handling people committing crime rely on educating and nurturing is more effective in every way compare with prison.
