Prison education is any educational activity that occurs inside prison. Courses can include basic literacy programs, high-school equivalency programs, vocational education and tertiary education. Other activities such as rehabilitation programs, physical education and arts and crafts programs may also be considered a form of prison education. Programs are typically provided, managed and funded by the prison system, though inmates may be required to pay for distance education programs. The history of and current practices in prison education vary greatly between different countries. People entering prison systems worldwide have, on average, lower levels of education than the general population. Prison education aims to make the inmate more employable by improving their skills and education. Running and attending educational programs in prisons can be difficult. Staff and budget shortages, a lack of educational resources and computers and the transfer of prisoners between correctional facilities are common problems. Prisoners may be reluctant to participate, often due to past educational failures, embarrassment at their low literacy, or a lack of interest. Studies consistently show that education in prison is an effective way of reducing the rates of recidivism, which saves the expense of future prison sentences. In the UK, it is estimated that every pound spent on prison education saves taxpayers more than two pounds, and in the US the rate is four to five dollars saved for every dollar spent. Despite the known benefits of prison education programs, rates of education within prisons remain low in many countries, and attempts to increase the rate of and funding for prison education have been opposed. Opponents argue that prison education is a waste of money and that prisoners do not deserve the right to be educated. In countries where tuition is paid by students, opponents may also argue that it is unfair for prisoners to have education funding when law-abiding citizens do not.

Prison education in Japan can be traced back to at least 1871, when practical ethics] lectures were introduced into a prison in Tokyo, and reading and writing classes began being implemented into the prison system on a larger scale by 1881. By the late 1880s, it was believed that ethics classes were the most important form of education for prisoners, and by the 1890s, education was considered one of the most important issues of the prison system. Conferences, mostly attended by prison staff, were held in 1889 and 1892 to discuss ways to improve education within the prison system. There was no unanimous agreement on the best way to implement moral education for prisoners, and different institutions began running their own individual programs. As of 1910, prison law in Japan ordered education be given to all juvenile inmates, and to any adult inmate deemed to need it. Regulations stipulated two to four hours a day be set aside for education. Changes were made to prison system in China in the 1920s, following the establishment of the Republic of China. Following a criticism of the lack of education for inmates at the time, there was a shift in the prison system from focusing on religious and moral teachings to focusing on intellectual education and hard labour as the primary means of rehabilitation. Authorities took considerable effort to develop an effective and diverse educational curriculum. As well as teaching literacy and arithmetic, classes also included music and composition, popular ethics, confucianism and patriotic and political doctrine; the teaching of party doctrine increased significantly in the 1930s. In 1981, the People's Republic of China incorporated prison education into its national education program, significantly increasing the availability of education to inmates.
