As I was reading the lesson, I found an interesting article on the NY Times News Blog. Stated :
"Schools or colleges have two purposes as far as students are concerned. The first is to educate. The second is to place students in challenging and well-compensated positions after they graduate so they can use their educations to build careers and lives. Along with the quality of the faculty is the effectiveness of the job-placement office. The university is society’s gatekeeper. Students see degrees as tickets of admission to the big show."
