But on the first day of school, only five boys make the cut. Kiyoshi Fujino, one of the lucky few, is thrilled by this discovery, his heart leaping with joy at the thought of being surrounded by all those girls, day in and day out. But little does he know of the shocking fate that awaits him.

Prison education is any educational activity that occurs inside prison. Courses can include basic literacy programs, high-school equivalency programs, vocational education and tertiary education. Other activities such as rehabilitation programs, physical education and arts and crafts programs may also be considered a form of prison education. Programs are typically provided, managed and funded by the prison system, though inmates may be required to pay for distance education programs. The history of and current practices in prison education vary greatly between different countries. People entering prison systems worldwide have, on average, lower levels of education than the general population. Prison education aims to make the inmate more employable by improving their skills and education. Running and attending educational programs in prisons can be difficult. Staff and budget shortages, a lack of educational resources and computers and the transfer of prisoners between correctional facilities are common problems. Prisoners may be reluctant to participate, often due to past educational failures, embarrassment at their low literacy, or a lack of interest. Studies consistently show that education in prison is an effective way of reducing the rates of recidivism, which saves the expense of future prison sentences. In the UK, it is estimated that every pound spent on prison education saves taxpayers more than two pounds, and in the US the rate is four to five dollars saved for every dollar spent. Despite the known benefits of prison education programs, rates of education within prisons remain low in many countries, and attempts to increase the rate of and funding for prison education have been opposed. Opponents argue that prison education is a waste of money and that prisoners do not deserve the right to be educated. In countries where tuition is paid by students, opponents may also argue that it is unfair for prisoners to have education funding when law-abiding citizens do not.
