There is another choice that you have consistently failed to recognize. Recognize the fraud for what it is and take appropriate measures to avoid it. While your first inclination is to change the world, mine is to recognize the world for what it is. Yes, I would prefer that some of the most egregious cases of education fraud be dealt with like those that occur on wall street, but that ins't my first mission. My first mission is to see to it that my family does not fall victim to it all. Lou said, in a way, that the people get the education that the people want. And he is right. My answer to that is "Don't be like those people."
