2018年11月3日场的雅思写作话题回归到了犯罪类话题，题目是：It is shown that many criminals have a low level of education. some people believe that the best way to reduce crime is to educate them in prison so that they can find a job after they leave prison. To what extent do you agree？事实证明，许多罪犯的教育水平很低。一些人认为减少犯罪的最好办法是在监狱里教育他们，这样他们离开监狱后就能找到工作。在多大程度上你同意吗?
Even though the life quality in most of the modern cities of different regions in the world has been highly improved, sadly, many kinds of crimes also can be heard and seen every now and then. In this case, some hold the idea that criminals should be given proper education while in prison in order to deter crimes and be blessed with more chances of employment after they are released. Personally speaking, I am in favour of the above statement.
It is my belief that nurture, not nature, is responsible for malignant and antisocial behaviours. The main factor for most offenders committing crimes again, once they have been released from prison, is due to the lack of rehabilitation whilst in jail. It is noticeable that most of prisoners take theirmajority of time for doing nothing after being locked behind the bars. In this way, it is predictable that their skills for making a living can hardly be improved during the time they have served. This fact has been testified by some statistics which indicates over 45% of those who are released still only have to rely on theirprevious skills and knowledge, which were not supporting enough in the first place to apply for jobs.
If lawbreakers shall be categorized according to their interests and hobbies and be retrained to the corresponding courses, they are likely to be equipped with knowledge and updated skills for their future job. However,alternatives to using rehabilitation to offer more employment chances would be much lessefficient. One option might be based on the idea that to have more supervision when they are back into society. This solution would hopefully impede them from taking any chances and hinder them from reoffending because they are being so closely watched. However, I doubt that it might put too much strain on the authorities and worse yet, it might lead to discriminations which weakens chances of being employed.
To sum up, to ensure that all criminals entering prison are given the chance to retrain with useful skills will hopefully ensure them a job after they have served their sentence. By doing this, it will help them reintegrate back into society and give them some means of supporting themselves financially.
