The Delhi government will provide educational assistance to Tihar Prisoners

To help Tihar Jail inmates reconnect with the community after completing their prison term, the Kejriwal government will now provide them with skills training and educational support. Prior to this, teachers in Delhi public schools will learn their background and potential skills.
Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia held a meeting with DG (Prison) Sandeep Goel, Secretary, Education, Ashok Kumar and senior officials of the Department of Education including teachers working with prison inmates on Thursday, to discuss details of the program.

Commenting on the project, Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia said, '' Our government believes that proper education is the only way to put a positive attitude among people and help them live better and more meaningful lives. About 20,000 Tihar prison inmates are serving their sentences. Now we need to understand their educational background and their interest in future education or skills. ''

Elaborating on the project, Manish Sisodia said, '' Under this project, our teachers will talk to inmates to understand their educational background and skills needs, and as a result, new programs will be developed. In addition, this study will also help the government to understand the gaps in the education system, as a result of which crime continues in society. "

Manish Sisodia also instructed teachers to communicate diligently and empathetically. He also added that teachers should make sure that they are able to understand the prisoners' different skills at the table while discussing and highlighting their areas of interest in order to work in the future.

It should be noted that the Delhi government is already implementing an education program at Tihar Prison and its additional facilities in Rohini and Mandoli, where government teachers are appointed by the Directorate of Education and study weekly. Now, these teachers will support the government with this research.
