This essay examines the institutional corruption at the heart of the education system. It argues that Students and faculty need to be on alert, exercise independent thought, and ask hard questions about the legitimacy of programs, relationships with the private sector, and representations made to secure funding. It further argues that regulators must make compliance enforcement a continued priority and search out new schemes. The essay concludes that restoring integrity to our educational institutions and using compliance to set examples is essential to instilling an appreciation for ethical conduct in the generations to come.
