Educational programmes for forensic patients are considered a tool of change because of the impact on rehabilitation, reintegration and, more specifically, employment outcomes upon release. Education is, however, much more than a tool for change. It is a tool that gives forensic patients the chance to gain the strength to stand back up, reorganise their lives and successfully integrate back into society.
Education is a chance for forensic patients to become stronger individuals, a chance that shouldn’t be taken away. Forensic patients have a right to learn and a right to be a part of society.
