Fraud in Higher Education

Original Article

This year's education scandal saw parents shelling out megabucks to gain college admittance for their children. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 50 people with participating in a scheme to get their children into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches. They paid William Singer, a college-prep professional, more than $25 million to bribe coaches and university administrators and to change test scores on college admittance exams such as the SAT and ACT. As disgusting as this grossly dishonest behavior is, it is only the tiny tip of fraud in higher education.

Ive been hearing for years that the first 2 years of college is basically remedial high school. Which may explain the college education requirement for just about every job that isnt driving a hammer or paint brush. Its because the high schools are graduating barely functioning young adults. It amazes me that one can graduate after12 years and still be an idiot. Then there is Ocasio Cortez. A degree in economics that qualified her to be a bartender.

Common Core is still followed blindly by state after state. Disbanding the Dept. of Education would be a good start.

The real crime is the myth that everyone needs to go to college. It is a question of supply and demand. Train young people earlier for a career and take out the politically tainted curricula in the lower levels and teach them history and politcal science in grammar school. We don't need to know about gays in Kindergarten or how to put on a condom. They can learn that later if need be.

And public education is one thing I hear people cite as an example of something government does well. Not only do we graduate dunces they don't know they are dunces. Worse yet these dunces think they know more than older people who were educated when education meant something and on top of that acquired life lessons. Hence we get the Gretas and of the world.

Many years ago I read a book dealing with the NEA. I am sorry that I don't remember the title, however, it was clearly stated that the goal of the NEA was and is to control the political system through the education system. So far I see that the left is being somewhat successful. Children are being indoctrinated by the government schools. My Daughter homeschooled all three of her children. What we now have are three well educated, well read, productive citizens that know what is going on. Thinkers that don't just accept what is thrown at them. They find out what is going on and are capable of making a decision based on all of the facts, not just what they see or hear in the media, print or broadcast. I'm proud of them and my Daughter for seeing it through and making them ready for life.

My first post was interrupted by an ad about women's clothes. That kind of interruption is becoming as annoying as those damnable telephone calls offering car warranties and lowering my interest rate on my credit cards. That said, allow me to speak as a retired professor, on the subject of grade inflation. The viet nam war/ military draft was the beginning. What kind of inhumane professor would want to give a bad grade, causing a student to lose his draft deferment, and go to fight a bad war? Selective Service put enormous pressure on schools, expecting them to evaluate cannon fodder. The federal student loan program, begun under the Nixon presidency, put large numbers of unqualified students in college. Professors felt pressure by administrators to keep those students from flunking out. Pell grants also played a part. Student evaluations became popular beginning in the 1970s. And the students weaponized those evaluations, being extremely critical of professors who maintained normal grading standards - a bell curve, if you will. (One professor Davis at my university became labeld D minus Davis by the students.) A young professor, starting his or her teaching career could be denied tenure and promotion with bad student evaluations. When I applied for promotion to full professor, I had to include five years of student evaluations. I had had two students rate me below average during that time span, and I had to sort of apologize for that. Finally, affirmative action played a big part of grade inflation. If I had an affirmative action admit in class, there was enormous pressure to pass that student no matter what, and that, in turn, boosted the grades of white students. And the affirmative action students were taught how to pressure the professor. Even at the doctoral level. My lecture is over. As Kamala Sutra would say, the truth is before you.

You want fraud? How about gerrymandering 'adversity' and 'diversity' into valid criteria along side grades and intelligence tests as requirements for college admission? And paying millions to come up with enough double talk to make that seem useful. How about dumbing down the SAT with the same junk? How about teaching hatred of this country and its people? Fraud.

Uneducated people can't make educated decisions, and become victims. They are ripe to be controlled, manipulated into following all sorts of truly disasterous policies. They give up their freedom. Khrushchev said to Kennedy, "We will BURY you." And those plans are still in operation, even if the Soviet Union is dust. Why? Because it is the philosophy of control, their agents taught our education system. they aimed at Science. They aimed at Law, they aimed at Religion. They took aim at those areas that had the greatest influence on Freedom, and seduced the educators with the promise of power. And those educators only promoted to follow them, only those who would not outshine them, yet still follow the path of greed and power. Thus education was diminished and warped to what we have today. If we want to save Ameica, first we must save the children from the people we have foolishly left in charge of education. There are lots of good teachers out there. But they are restrained and limited by those politicians within their ranks who are in positions of authority. We have to clean house in far more areas, than politics.

In addition to No.6, I would add that Colleges and banks make a bundle on the interest on student loan money. The college may as well be a bank. There are those who do repay their loans. It’s cruel what they do to these kids and parents by charging exorbitant tuition. Then they give them courses in race and feminism so that they can go out and become activists. I will also submit that many of these state universities are merely an extension of high school for a majority of students. After reading this article, one gets to understand the stupid people on those man on the street interviews conducted first by Jay Leno and now Jesse Waters.

Like Lake Wobegone, colleges have devolved into places where "all the children are above average". FTA: "They found that 45% of 2,300 students at 24 colleges showed no significant improvement in "critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing by the end of their sophomore years." If these "students" (and even using the term is a fraud) were taught actual critical complex reasoning, they would immediately see that the lefts indoctrination was garbage and come out of colleges as conservatives. But, then again, if the people who have jobs as 'professors' (frauds, too) were actually able to use complex, critical thinking, they wouldn't be leftists, either. And how in hell can someone incapable of complex, critical reasoning possibly TEACH it? I took an engineering path course of study starting in the late 60s, and finished my grad school work in the middle 70s, so I got onto the tail end of "when colleges actually taught something useful". But even then, you could take a course of study which was mostly smoke and mirrors. THIS is how the country is destroyed from within, by a lack of actually educated people to run it, to vote and to make everything work.

When I was going to college in the mid-seventies, teachers used to post grades outside their classrooms (albeit without names). I noticed that there were very few grades under a "B", even for the difficult advanced math classes. Feeling that this made all of our grades rather meaningless (unless you received a "D" or "F" of course), I complained in person to the dean of the California state college I was attending. The condescending reply I received was well, not to worry, because at some point the job market will sort it all out. I was aghast for all the reasons the reader can easily come up with. I can only assume that what was true then is only more so today.

The problem goes deep. Imagine if you will a twelve year old kid. He/she cannot read. That is a can/cannot, absolute statement. At what point does that kid realize he/she can't read and knows its wrong. When that kid does nothing we blame everyone. But at some point, its the kid.

Any place where there is an exclusive product, not enough seats and massive profits invites fraud and many succumb to it. Our system of higher education needs rebuilt from the ground up or maybe we should begin with the Publik Skool System first. The descriptive word here is Failure and the nation's academics. heartily backed by the government, are responsible for it.

What business other than an elite college or university that was turning away 95% of its paying customers would neither expand nor open new locations? And what exactly is their product? Education? There is not an ioata of empirical evidence that you will learn any more physics or economics or history at Harvard after four years of an undergraduate education than you would at a state school with a compass point in its name, assuming you apply yourself of course. No what Harvard offers that Western Nebraska College of Mines and Sheep does not is the ultimate affirmation that you are special. Not just special but the specialist person anywhere ever and if anyone doubts it you can show them this piece of paper we give you after four years.

#16's comments are spot on. Schools like Harvard continuously espouse their superiority over other schools and the elites in the business world help them propagate this myth by hiring only graduates of the elite schools. The average graduate of any school retains approximately 17% of what the school has taught him and many absorb far less. The difference is that the elites think they can stop learning after graduation because they are "special." That's why we have so many unyielding idiots in the business world and most inovation comes not from a superior education but from imagination and superior talent. A perfect example is IBM who only hired "the creme of the crop" but were subsequently trampled from the early 1980s onward by those who may or may not have had a four year degree.

The efforts to get kids into college was predicted when they passed laws that gave precedence to minorities getting into college. There is competition with college entrance, especially in the top colleges of the country. I would probably have sent my kid to Oxford or a foreign college as they would be better suited for a top education.

In demonrat and teacher union thinking, scoring A+ is sex education, how to rumble and create terror, and acing 2+2 = 5 are the only things that really count. I ran into a teacher who told me that whenever she has to teach a lazy student who never does homework and fails every test with an actual score of about 30 or 40, she automatically raises his score and overlooks the non-submitted homework and automatically passes him/her on to the next grade. This in a rural school system. It permeates everywhere. That's the real public education your kids aren't getting and tells you how incompetent parents, single or otherwise, are.

It’s the perennial anomaly of Jewish voter surveys: Vast majorities feel an attachment to Israel, but relatively few are thinking about the Jewish state when they cast their vote. On the day of last year’s midterm congressional elections, J Street, the liberal Jewish Middle East policy group, asked Jewish voters to name their two most important issues. Just 4 percent chose Israel. The same survey found that 65 percent said they were somewhat or very emotionally attached to Israel. The J Street survey is not an outlier. The American Jewish Committee, a foreign policy and civil rights group, found a similar discrepancy in its 2015 poll, in which barely

The individuals conspired to “make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions” valued around $3.5 million in the 2016 election campaign and beyond, according to the announcement. Although the indictment does not specifically name the recipient of the donations, it is clear that the contributions went to groups allied with Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The document was produced by a major international law firm and is a “lobbying manual for people who want to change the law to prevent parents having the final say about significant changes in the status of their own children,” Kirkup explains. The manual’s authors advise activists across the world to use “certain techniques,” including attempts to “get ahead of the government agenda.”

This week, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee trotted out a trio of dispassionate legal experts to explain why the impeachment of Donald Trump was justified. They were there to bring a veneer of gravitas and erudition to what’s been, until now, a highly partisan affair. But however smart people such as Michael Gerhardt, distinguished professor of constitutional law at University of North Carolina, might be, they aren’t immune from peddling partisan absurdities. Once Gerhardt argued that Trump’s conduct was “worse than the misconduct of any prior president,” we no longer had any intellectual obligation to take him seriously on the topic.

In a column titled "America's Red State Death Trip," Krugman wrote: "In 1990, today's red and blue states had almost the same life expectancy. Since then, however, life expectancy in Clinton states has risen more or less in line with other advanced countries, compared with almost no gain in Trump country. At this point, blue-state residents can expect to live more than four years longer than their red-state counterparts." On this basis, Krugman blasts Attorney General William Barr, who suggested earlier this year that militant secularism lies behind rising

President Donald Trump likes to say he’s going to win so much, you’ll get tired of winning. Maybe Democrats have taken the president too literally. The Democratic Attorneys General Association is leading the charge to excise all abortion moderates from the good graces of the party. It announced it will not endorse or assist any candidates who do not support unfettered abortion access. While state AGs may not seem incredibly relevant, they are an important stepping stone toward governors’ mansions in many states. So, considering the Democrats’ weak bench for plausible candidates in red states, the decision not to compete for attorney general is significant.

A little something to cleanse the palate.

Or at least it was when I was a regular listener a million years ago. (In fairness to Stern, she’s the one who brings it up.) He went easy on her by not asking the obvious follow-up: What were you doing at Epstein’s ranch, then? She should consider this a missed opportunity, as a surprise admission of bisexuality would have helped add a little more “diversity” to an upcoming Democratic debate.

California Sen. Kamala Harris should never have run for president in the first place. Her ambition far exceeded her ability. She hadn’t yet established herself in the U.S. Senate. And she hadn’t exactly excelled in her previous job as California’s attorney general. There wasn’t much of a record worth bragging about on the campaign trail. After being elected to the Senate in a 2016 cakewalk, she should have spent the next three years focused exclusively on representing Californians in Congress, helping the state on such vital issues as water development, environmental protection, healthcare and homelessness.
