Teaching English in Prison

There’s an interesting story in the Chicago Tribune newspaper about a teacher teaching English in a local prison in order to help the inmates when they are released.

The classroom becomes here not just a way to learn English but for the inmates a safe place where they can prepare themselves for a much better life.

“Educational or vocational programming is the best way a jail can reduce recidivism,” said John Maki, executive director of the John Howard Association. “Giving inmates who don’t speak English the ability to speak English helps their job prospects and helps them to reacclimate to their life on the outside.”

Editorial

ICAL strongly support this kind of community based teaching as it works on all levels and we offer part TEFL scholarships to both teachers working in prisons as well as inmates who wish to take a course and we have a number of students in both camps.
