In the USA talent, but money doesn't count

married couples in the USA have paid, according to derin the last days known to charge the equivalent of 6.5 million Swiss francs in bribes to your child at an Elite University. That's more than most Americans in your life deserve.

Because of these insane sums of money the affair of Uni-cheating caused a worldwide sensation – and also because celebrities are involved. The "Desperate Housewives" well-known actress Felicity Huffman, for example, the now guilty of known threatened and a prison sentence.

The scandal draws attention especially to the deeply unjust educational system in the United States, which preferred the Rich and the poor and in some cases completely exclude the possibility. This System is made possible and even encouraged by a deep-rooted attitude to life in this country. You can be in the Motto: me first me first!

selfishness, and injustice are everywhere in the world, certainly. But nowhere else is so celebrated, that every man is responsible for himself and a free market of supply and demand will sort it all out.

universities as an educational caste system

The famous and prestigious universities in the United States are private institutions that not only entice you with the promise of a quality education, but also with the access to a unique network of current and former students.

Many make there first important contacts, you reasons companies such as Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg and four fellow students 2004 Harvard), Google (Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 1998 at Stanford) or Yahoo (Jerry Yang and David Filo in 1995 in Stanford), but later on billions of dollars in value.

The course of study at an American Elite University is not a privilege for the Talented, but often an investment of a Successful in a successful future for their children – and, thus, an educational caste system.

in Short: There is in the world of higher academic Trainingin the United States no performance, but a money Elite.

Caught in self-interest

it starts with kindergartens, which cost more than 45'000 dollars; it continues with the schools that require more than 50'000 of dollars; and it ends at universities such as Harvard, which hit a year of study, currently with just under 70'000 dollars. Add to that the private teacher for the preparation for the standardized entrance tests, the five-year long all-Round carefree package of the company Ivy Coach, for example, costs the equivalent of 1.5 million Swiss francs.

And there's always the legal and, above all, of the private universities actively promoted the possibility, through a generous donation to help. With all the excitement about the scandal, which also prevails in the United States: not so few parents also invest, without corruption and fraud in seven-digit amounts in the education of their children.

The U.S. education system is like a pyramid, with the children of poorer families-a peasant at the first stage, while wealthy parents to their offspring to build a staircase out of money all the way to the top. The Amazing thing is how quiet and lau, the protests are against.

It took major changes to the injustice curb, a stronger participation of the state, and a ceiling or abolition of tuition fees. For Europeans, normal thoughts are in the United States as radical Attempts at socialism. Everyone knows how unfair this System is, and yet nothing will change.

The Americans are – not just in education – are caught up in your selfishness.
