Education & Crime

It is often argued that poor education leads to higher crime rates. First of all, that's false - they correlate.

Anyway, I actually think this is inaccurate for another reason. Poor education leads to more arrests, not more crime. Better education would lead to fewer arrests, as the criminals would be better prepared to get away with it...

Possibly not the best advertisement for a university degree, "Get away with stuff!". Well, maybe it would be in DC...
