"The work of education in prison is inextricably bound up with larger issues in penal policy."
The Irish Prison Education Association's 14th annual Liam Minihan Lecture, 'The potential of education for people held in prison', was given by Kevin Warner. His lecture focuses on adult education's "distinctive philosophy and approaches, the depth and breadth of it, and its enormous potential for the men and women held in prison". It also touches on "the prison system and its shifting thinking and shifting policies, which of course impact on education".
