IS recruits more educated than average: World Bank study

Recruits into the Islamic State group are better educated than their average countryman, contrary to popular belief, according to a new World Bank study. The study, which aimed to identify socioeconomic traits that might explain why some are drawn to the Syria-based extremist group, made clear that poverty and deprivation were not at the root of support for the group. Out of 331 recruits described in a leaked Islamic State database, only 17 percent did not finish high school, while a quarter had university-level educations.
