P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​rison is the most severe sentence given for crime in this country. Is it designed to rehabilitate or is it a punishment?

Are our prisons doing anything to rehabilitate or not?

Are they given new coping mechanisms? Ae they learning new psychological cost benefit skill​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​s?

Are they learning to view their victims differently etc. Or are there negative consequences, are they coming out worse? Are they becoming more aggressive etc….

Don’t fixate on the word cure. This question is just asking whether prison is reducing reoffending r​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​ates.
