Shadow scholar

I know this link has already been tossed around, but I find it fascinating. Especially how little of a grasp this dude's college-student clients have on English...

That is a very good article. I always like to read the comments at the end. My favorite was someone talking about the consequences of people graduating and getting a job without having learned anything. "You will have caused the woman's death: not us." (us being the educators.) Um, no, the entire point of the article is that no one person is responsible. The students cheat because the teachers expect too much because the administrators force them to, which doesn't matter anyway because bosses don't expect knowledge just performance. So when the bridge comes crashing down, we all just point fingers at everyone else.

Good thought piece.
