Fraud in Higher Education

Walter E. Williams, CNS News

This year's education scandal saw parents shelling out megabucks to gain college admittance for their children. More than 50 people were charged with participating in a scheme to get their children into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches. As disgusting as this grossly dishonest behavior is, it is only the tiny tip of fraud in higher education. The falling standards witnessed at our primary and secondary levels are becoming increasingly the case at tertiary levels. The fact that unscrupulous parents paid millions for special favors from college administrators to enroll their children pales in comparison to the poor educational outcomes, not to mention the gross indoctrination of young people by leftist professors.
