This blog is dedicated to dispelling the myth that education=prosperity and schooling=success. It has lured countless young, and sometimes older, people into the pursuit of false hopes accompanied by mountains of debt.
In Scholastic Snake Oil, I will expose some of the unethical practices academic administrators, as well as others who make lots of money from the higher education industry, use to entice hopeful students into enrolling in schools and programs, and to pursue majors and degrees, that have absolutely no value in the job market and are not socially useful or even personally enriching in any way. I also aim to show some the collateral damage, if you will, caused by those unethical practices and questionable practices.
