Prisons...

Prisons have become an election issue now.

Is it just me or is the role of prisons to try and rehabilitate the criminals and ready them for reintergration into the general community?

This is a low security womens prison where all the residents will be released in the future. Why not train them with some skills that they can use on the outside? Would it not reduce the chances of reoffending if they can get a job and not rely on the procedes of crime?
