A truly amazing story:
ten students who failed to complete the requirements for the master’s degree in criminal justice will nevertheless be awarded degrees at the upcoming graduation ceremony. This after the ten students filed a lawsuit against the college, claiming that the college “had violated its contract with its students,” seeking “punitive damages of $2,500” and demanding “that the college change its requirements to allow them to graduate without having passed the exam or the seminar paper.”
But then again, given the ways in which we’ve come to speak of education as a service or investment, it’s also perfectly logical.
Why didn’t I ever think of suing search committees for– I don’t know, something?
