Why are prison sentences linked to time

Comment 7th July 2010

I believe that a lot of crime is because people are poorly educated. How about linking the release to academic attainment as well as time. So – if you have a 10 year sentence you could be released after 6 years if you have moved say 2 levels up in English and Maths on the national curriculum. If you haven't you may be in there for 12. There may be other courses that can be built into this. 

Why does this matter?

It would then prove we are serious about rehab and cut future crime.
