Sažetak
Along with the societal changes we are all witnessing, the needs for lifelong learning are increasing. Adult learning and education is to a great extent an unexplored field. This in particular refers to the contested educational field, considering the fact that many negate the sole possibility of educational activity with adults. Along with other social changes of the contemporary world, most countries have an increasing population of convicts, who are a subgroup of the socially excluded population. A prison sentence and criminal activities that precede it, do not just affect the individual – the convict. The stated processes affect the society as a whole, especially the convicts’ primary social environment. Educational work represents an important part of convicts’ rehabilitation and resocialization, and educational programmes, managed by the staff of the treatment ward of penal institutions, are implemented with the aim to prevent the convict’s return to crime and his/her more successful adaptation into society after leaving the penal institution. This research was conducted on a sample of 96 surveyed convicts of Osijek County jail. It attempted to examine the attitudes of the convict population towards the educational parts of the prison treatment and their own future. The obtained data was analysed using descriptive statistics, independent sample t-test and ANOVA. The data was analysed using OpenStat statistical programme. The results indicate that the convicts who participated in the research have positive attitudes towards the prison treatment and that they optimistically assess their own future. There is a positive correlation between the participant’s age and his/her attitudes towards his/her own future and educational needs. This research indicates that the level of convicts’ education and his/her attitudes towards educational needs at certain levels are connected. This indicates that it is impossible to generalize the attitudes and expectations of individual convicts and that there is a need for an individualized approach to each convict. This paper should contribute to theory of andragogy and penological-andragogic practice in defining the factors of quality penal treatment, which would also present a pathway towards improvement of the penal system as a whole.
