Has education become a business or worse a maddening race between students?
Debate Rounds (3)
My argument will be that education is not simply just a business strategy that is meant to take money from parents. I will also argue that the degrees are not "fake" and are important to society.
I will consent there is an issue of many students being focused simply on the monetary benefits of education.

FF by opponent.
Students purchasing fake degrees - Those students took and passed the classes required for the major. If they failed to fully garner any education while in college then it will show during an interview and on the job site.
Education is a business - Everything is a business to some degree. However those concerned with the business part of schools are not your teachers but instead much higher administration. It is in the administration's interest to educate and prepare students in the best way so they can be successful and donate back to the school, or score better on tests and raise the rating of the school. For education to be successful as a business, the school must make good students and have successful classroom enviornments that are not hindered by the business side of the school. Your claims that they are just money grabs from students pockets are not supported.
Standard of Education - I would argue the standard has increased because of the increased competition and rising application numbers. As having a degree becomes more important in todays society, the education system will be able of selecting better students for the limited class seats.
