Rampant Cheating Shows Pointlessness of Most Degress

An article written by someone in the know. He not only detailshow expansive plagiarism is, but also that many who plagiarize barely have to write at a third grade level.  It is a scathing easy of sorts because it briefly touches upon the matriculation of high school students into college, even though they have no business being in college, the extremely suspect competency of a person who gets degreed in a soft program as well as a potentially lucrative, though soul deadening, career as a professional essayist for the incompetent, foreign student or the lazy rich.

You would be amazed by the incompetence of your students' writing. I have seen the word "desperate" misspelled every way you can imagine. And these students truly are desperate. They couldn't write a convincing grocery list, yet they are in graduate school. They really need help. They need help learning and, separately, they need help passing their courses. But they aren't getting it
The above paragraph is probably my favorite since his words a literary broadside into the educational establishment. In this short passage we see the farce that higher education has become, because the student he is describing isn't a dumb frat boy in Business Management but someone earning a graduate degree.  These individuals are, supposedly, the academically minded, who are going to graduate school to earn their masters and PhD, yet many of them can barely string together a coherent sentence much less make a compelling argument.

Ultimately it is a matter of corruption. The universities, and their administrations, have become utterly dependent on the constant influx of new young blood; I mean how else are you going to pay for a degree in transgender American studies? Funny how universities are so adamant that everyone takes an ethics class yet are more than willing to keep their students in the dark as to the true value of their degree, or turn a blind eye to cheating lest the prospect of enforcing academic standards dry up their revenue pool.
