My column last week on higher education having some sort of value brought an interesting response from a professor at Weber State University.
This professor said he occasionally gets a complaint from a student who doesn’t like his/her grade because he/she paid tuition to be there and, by god, this means a passing grade should be part of the deal.
Yeah, I know: Huh? But some students apparently think that way.
“This is easy,” I told the professor. “Just hand him/her a brochure for one of those on-line universities that sell degrees for $500. They’ll save money!”
He said he didn’t have any of those brochures. Ever wanting to be helpful, I sent him the following link:
And I must hasten to add, I in now way endorce getting a college degree by paying someone $500 and waiting five days. It’s lazy, it’s deceptive, it’s a waste of money.
But if all you want is a degree, well, there you are. Get out of college and leave it for people who want to learn something.
