Lucy Prabhu raised an interesting and important question re the impact of poor literacy on the 'Children of the Code' thread on the 'Education Blogs and Websites of Interest' forum.

Lucy said:

It seems to me to be an extremely interesting area of study - how poor literacy in the English-speaking world impacts personal psychology and in turn upon behaviour in society. Is there a body of knowledge out there on this topic or a key text I could look for?

You can go to this link to see some information about prison populations in various countries kindly provided by Kerry Hempenstall - and also a piece on the lack of statistics of prison populations in England - see here:
