Are Modern Prison Systems Too Soft?

This week we discussed how jail systems in the UK, Russia and Norway were run. In groups we played a game of 'True or False in Jail',We were shocked by what prisoners were given - especially computer games and pet birds.

We firstly shared what we felt a prison should be like by playing thumbs up, thumbs down using a video. Some thought they should be harsh and difficult places for prisoners. On the other hand, some felt that the prisoners were entitled to education and care.

We found out that in Norway, prisons seems to be nice places and, although considered soft, the re offending rate was lower than others.After, we discussed what a prison should then be like based on our learning.
