Children should get lessons in prison life to stop them becoming involved in crime, according to the Duke of Westminster’s daughter.
Lady Edwina Grosvenor, who has dedicated her life to prison reform, today called for the classes to be included in the national curriculum.
Why does everyone with a tuppenny-ha’penny cause or idea feel they have the right to demand it be shoehorned into the bulging national curriculum?
Surely children are far too busy learning how to write advertising copy (H/T: Tim Worstall) to study old episodes of ‘Porridge’?
She said that teaching primary and secondary school children about the harsh reality of jail would deter them from committing offences.
Really? It seems that actually going to jail doesn’t do that! Maybe that ‘harsh reality’ isn’t as harsh as their home lives?
