Down the Merry Dead End path of crappy credentialling for hire

‘Well, What would you do with a brain if you had one?’ …said Dorothy to the Scarecrow. Thus began the Scarecrow’s quest for proper credentialing///! They were off and headed down the merry dead end path of the yellow brick road in search of crappy credentialing for hire so that the scarecrow man would then be able to feel that he had a brain. But did he actually have one?

If only Dorothy and the Scarecrow had read the new book, Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses …they might not have run up such a bad student debt for the Scarecrow! Now the Scarecrow is still working at Walmart and owes $98,000 for a degree he got in ‘Marketing’. What do you think he learned from this experience? That ‘education’ costs a lot and really is a lot of crap when it is measured strictly by the buying and selling of credentials?

Perhaps…? But most people receiving crappy credentials in the US seem to think that they, in fact, do have an education even when, in fact, they really don’t.
