Comment of the Week
“I wonder if the overwhelming demand for students in STEM fields has led to a reduction in academic rigor. More students means more research, leaving colleges with relatively little/no less qualified testers to handle and troubleshoot.
Plus, there is little short-term incentive for universities to turn away paying students. Long-term, allowing sub-par students to succeed only hurts the sciences – but today’s academia is highly compartmentalized and ethics are about as far removed from STEM as any discipline.
I am not suggesting that STEM professionals are any less ethical than anyone else; that ethics has become a legal checklist rather than true moral principles. There are, no doubt, truly ethical professionals out there who remain uncompromising in their standards; I just worry that they are the academic equivalent of the northern white rhino – old and barren, just waiting to see which is the last of a once proud breed.”
