Bentley University Must be so Proud of this one

Stephens: To the Class of 2012 - "Definitely a good point. Plenty of young college students pick up the WSJ every day. Instead of writing a piece to illicit a negative response, I believe it would be a greater service to try and look at the problems with a higher education today. 1) Teachers Unions- get ride of them, all they do is keep poor professors around far to long and destroy the incentive for teachers to do their jobs 2) Instead of these broad course topics and general classes get some specifics (for me I took a class on Corporate Valuation that could have been split up into at least 4 seperate classes): teach me something I can't learn from reading a book 3) Incentivize the system for students to do well: scholarship money is rewarded on a year to year basis, that way students are given a positive incentive to try harder. *Key point- incentivize teachers and students and you'll get a system that encourages actual educational growth instead of simply going through the motions"

This scholar claims to be graduating in 2013 with a degree in Finance and Economics. Spelling, grammar and logic were apparently not among the required courses. In the course of 3 comments there are numerous examples of fuzzy thinking, word misuse and general crimes against the English language.

Thank you to Thomas Moore (hopefully not his real name) for being a wonderful example of the failures of the educational system. What, you mean that wasn't his purpose?

Never mind.
