Two blockbuster Education studies were released this week from thunk tinks of the highest caliber.
The Institute for a Moral Compass announced that US students by their own admission are the biggest, liars, cheats and thieves in the world. One interesting correlation in the study seemed to suggest that if your parents worked in the finance industry you were much more likely to lie, cheat and steal.
If your parents were auto executives, you were more apt to lie, steal and cheat to get a foreign made car.
In a second study, this one from the Pythagoas Consortium found that US students math scores have been skyrocketing especially among the children of finance and auto industry parents.
