Essay on Is A College Degree?
B. Blank puts "better" and "meaningful" in quotations because he is referring to how most people assume getting a degree means that the person will easily get a job that would be both "better" and "meaningful" than a person who doesn 't get a college degree, however, that isn 't the case at all.
C. You can conclude that even going to a "prestigous" university like Harvard can still mean you can end up having a low-paid job like driving taxi. You can also conclude college is an advertisement for getting more money through these "better jobs."
D. Blank mentions three perversions, which are: perversion of the true spirit of a university, a perversion of a humane social ethic, and literally a patent fraud.
E. The two types of fraud that Blank describes are: The first point is that depending on the economy you aren 't automatically guaranteed a "better" job and these colleges are not geared to train for such jobs. Secondly, we can question ourselves for labeling two types of work, which are worked-labeled "better" because it has a degree requirement tagged to it, and a non-degree that we assume as low level.
F. The practical curriculum is that the students must become prisoners, while the universities become servants of big businesses and government.
