Prisons are meant to be a way of protecting society and hopefully reforming criminals to become positive members of society upon being released. Providing prisoners with education and educational resources offers a positive distraction for the prisoner whereas leaving them unoccupied allows more socialization into the prison culture, often creating a more violent inmate. Allowing reading materials in the cells helps prisoners escape the walls surrounding them. One prisoner commented that, “I am a devourer of books, through books my mind feels free in total disregard to the present situation”. Books provide an escapists route to focus on what can help shorten the days and provide life with goals and dreams outside the prison, since the long days in the prison stretch on for many prisoners.The study addresses the Post Literacy Project and gives recommendations that can make much headway to increase literacy level enhancing prisoners rehabilitation thus prevent them from integrating into the brutal prison culture.This offers the most effective method of reintegrating them into the public and and allow them to become positive contributors in society.
