Criminal Classes: Offenders at School (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


This work examines the links between educational failure and future offending behaviour. It contains the stories of inmates' schooldays told in their own words as they try to answer the question "could anything have been done to prevent you being in custody now?" The book ends with suggestions on action schools might take towards redressing social, cultural and educational disadvantage and intervening to help limit future offending behaviour.

Angela Devlin's spent 25 years teaching children with special needs in Scotland, London, Kent and Sussex, and later specialised in specific learning disabilities. She was educated in Wales and at Oxford University and is married with four grown up children. Her other books include Going Straight: After Crime and Punishment with Bob Turney, Prison Patter, Invisible Women: What's Wrong With Women's Prisons and Cell Mates: Soul Mates. She has also published Anybody's Nightmare: The Sheila Bowler Story with her husband Tim Devlin (Taverner Publications, 1998 but available via Waterside Press). All Angela's works possess the same probing, analytical approach and are enormously readable.
