John school is a diversion program aimed at johns, or clients of prostitutes. In jurisdictions in which john schools exist, a person arrested for soliciting the services of a prostitute, or another related offense, may be offered john school as an alternative to criminal prosecution. He will pay a fine, which covers the cost of the program and sometimes contributes to programs to aid prostitutes, and attend a series of classes. These classes purport to teach about the reality of prostitution, such as the abuse histories of many prostitutes, the sexually transmitted disease risks of prostitution, and the effects of prostitution on families and communities.
