Malachy Posted January 30, 2007 Report Share Posted January 30, 2007 You can't guarantee that money spent on anyone will have the desired affect, be that education, reformation or whatever. So potential savings of Â£30k+ is attractive, but the key word is "potential". That's the same with anyone. You can't guarantee that after ten years of school someone will not come out like Jade. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't educate people. Plus, we are not talking about a specific quantity of money here - if we spend it on prisoners the kids won't get it - it is an additional cost that would, undoubtedly be worth spending.
