I just had to comment on one aspect of the story.

“…

Here is the outrageous lie in this whole story:

“…’Everybody tells you to go to college, get an education, and everything will be O.K. So that’s what I did.’…”

She didn’t have a chance going up against the charlatans of higher education – wolves in sheepskin clothing.

I know this sounds over the top, but after watching decades of this “higher” corruption, it’s difficult to stomach the damaged lives – and damaged society – that is the result of academic greed.

But don’t just take my word for it, listen to Clark Kerr and David Riesman – in 1980.

“…advantage can…be taken of [students] by unscrupulous instructors and institutions…” David Riesman, from his book, “On Higher Education: The Academic Enterprise in an Era of Rising Student Consumerism”

“…This shift from academic merit to student consumerism is one of the two greatest reversals of direction in all the history of American higher education..” Clark Kerr
