Criminal Classes : Offenders at School Paperback / softback


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.
