3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Craig Brandon on August 27, 2010
Format: Paperback
When I was doing the research for my book "The Five-Year Party" this book was a real eye-opener about why quality was deteriorating and why parents were paying more and more for an education that provides less and less. Its description of students' attitudes towards education - they want high grades but don't want to do any work - described the problem perfectly.

While the book is a little dense at times -- after all, it was writted by two sociology professors - it should be required reading for all parents about to send their children to college.
