Even though having an education is ultimate way to make a successful life in this world, I don't feel having one would put an end to crime. Some of the words most evil criminals were very educated people, and knew exactly what they were doing as for as morals go.
When one says education is key to stopping crime, what crime exactly? Murder, rape, theft? In what context is "education" a universal cure for this? What about financial crime? Corruption? Does this require more education as well? What kind of education anyway? This seems like a feel-good claim that doesn't really amount to anything.
