The Brits have screwed up a great many things (and due to the current garbage culture, will continue this trend) but their college classes are still pretty kick ass (at least as of a decade ago). When the kid was there, she was writing papers multiple times a week, not just a couple of essays a quarter/semester. (degree was in English).

Their set up is this: bring two copies of your paper to class. You keep one, give the second to the don/professor.

You then read your paper OUT LOUD in front of the class. The Don then shreds it in public. For instance - explain this sentence, justify this assertion, were you drunk when you wrote this??

Apparently, the first class was finished in tears (all Americans). The Don was magnanimous and stated it was ok, they went easier on Americans, LOL.

Needless to say, she buckled down and ended up with at least one , if not a couple of Don's volunteering to write her letters of recommendation.

We have decided not to "stress" our students with too much "work" and "knowledge". Don't want to hurt anyone fweeings!

Hence, when she returned to her American college, she was bored out of her mind and completely bummed about the cost of her "higher education".

Standards exist for a reason. If someone doesn't expect you to meet OR EXCEED said standards, most people will never reach it and thus we end up with a fully mediocre population, AT BEST.
