Will Education Stop Corruption in Developing Countries?

Dr Grant Walton will speak on "Is education a silver bullet for solving corruption in developing countries?" at the Australian National University in Canberra, 1pm, 1 October 2015.

ps: It seems to me that education is unlikely to stop corruption. In Australia there is a growing scandal over higher eduction providers selling unsuitable courses knowing that the Federal Government will foot the bill through the VET FEE-HELP scheme. Before Australia suggests that education can be used to combat corruption in other countries, I suggest it needs to clean up this corruption in its own education system.
