Varsity Shams: American Education’s New Claim to Shame
America’s perfect academic dream is rooted with flaws. Foreign students arriving into the US to pursue higher studies are now bearing the brunt of giving into its universities’ tall promises. After the killing of Prasanth Goinka, a student of Indian origin, the investigation revealed much deeper and dangerous problem. The university, at which Goinka was enrolled in, San Jose’s International Technological University was an unaccredited entity. Furthermore, the student visa that was issued by the university to Goinka was a fake. The revelation not only ignited protests in India but cast a hanging sword on America’s education-system as a whole.
