Inmates at Bali’s notorious Kerobokan Prison are now able to takes course in business or philosophy during their period of incarceration.

The courses in business and philosophy formally commenced on Wednesday, September 28, 2011. A Norwegian professor, Ivar Schou, is teaching the initial intake of 20 philosophy students.

Among Professor Shou’s students are three members of the “Bali Nine” – Myuran Sukumaran, Scott Rush and Martin Stephen. Sukamaran is housed on death row under sentence of death, while Rush and Stephen are serving life terms.

According to Beritabali.com, the course in philosophic studies will last for one year with classes meeting every week for three hours.

Siswanto, the chief warden at the prison, said: “By following this program, it is hoped that the inmates will acquire skills that can be used when they leave prison. This philosophy course is also intended to build character among the inmates, making them better people in the future.”

The warden gave credit for initiating the philosophy and business courses to the Australian parents of Scott Rush. “The parents of the convict Rush know the philosophy professor from Norway and a business teacher Joe Nowak. They then suggested that their Son and other inmates at the Denpasar prison should receive schooling in philosophy and business,” explained Siswanto.

The prison already offers course in a number of other areas to its inmates - including lessons in painting, English and sewing.
