Nowadays education has become a mere business strategy.Even in small towns and villages schools are opened in order to loot tremendous amount of money from the parents in the name of fees not in order to serve the nation by giving a bright future to the students.And students are also competing hard for degrees and jobs.They don't care about education.They only want money and fake degrees.


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.

Well, I didn't mean to say that degrees are fake but i wanted to say that many students are purchasing fake degrees for getting good jobs instead of working hard.And in present world education is a huge business from small-scale village schools to large universities and colleges.Question papers are also leaking out.Many students are being dependent on private tuitions instead of self-study.In this way the standard of education is deteriorating in society.


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.
