Wow, talk about the School of Hard Knocks!

Apparently, there’s a trend in MBA programs to use ex-cons as speakers to educate the MBA hopefuls on ethics and legal behavior. Now, I can see how it would get the point across, and I’m all for letting someone who’s paid their debt to society make a living, but is this really the best idea? I mean, shouldn’t we teach ethics and proper, legal business behavior through positive examples not negative ones? As the article suggests some people think, it’s almost like rewarding criminal behavior.

I did like, however, the mention of the ex-con who embezzled million dollars from the security company who hired him. He’s awaiting sentencing now. I think they should sentence him to life, in a cubicle.
