Education in prisons
Under international law, no one may be deprived of the right to education. Prison inmates have the same rights to education and training as other Norwegian citizens.
Academic and administrative responsibility for education in prisons lies with the county councils. Practical responsibility for providing teaching lies with the local upper-secondary schools.
The County Governor of Hordaland has overall national responsibility for educational provision within the prison system.
