Academia Collapsus

Colleges are crumbling.  Maybe not on the outside, but they have become, in many ways, useless.  They are nothing more than diploma factories.  Ivory towers where the professors prattle on with their leftist propaganda, and the students learn little or nothing on the path to receiving their degree so that they can get  job at a local McDonalds, or working as a stripper.

Now comes the story of a ghost writer of college papers.  Startling is hardly the word.

I do a lot of work for seminary students. I like seminary students. They seem so blissfully unaware of the inherent contradiction in paying somebody to help them cheat in courses that are largely about walking in the light of God and providing an ethical model for others to follow. I have been commissioned to write many a passionate condemnation of America’s moral decay as exemplified by abortion, gay marriage, or the teaching of evolution. All in all, we may presume that clerical authorities see these as a greater threat than the plagiarism committed by the future frocked.

Read the whole thing here. (HT to voxday for the link)

Perhaps most shocking is not the article itself, but the second commenter, who is clearly a teacher at one of these universities.  She essentially admits that the interaction between professor and student is so slight that they are unable and unwilling to have the system change.  In other words : Professors don’t actually teach, they present information to large groups of people, and really don’t care how much/little you learn.  That’s just sad.

The educational system in America is Broken.  Socialism will do that to you.
