This week on EducationOption: Harvard and homicide
On EducationOption right now…
– Are college students less likely to be the victims of homicide compared to other people their age who are not enrolled in school? Not only are they less likely to be murdered, but they are less likely to die for several reasons, according to a new study. The research is the first study to focus on mortality rates among college students since 1939. Find out more about it here.
– There’s been plenty of finger-pointing when it comes to what exactly caused our country to fall into economic turmoil. Now, though, some people are saying it all started in a Harvard classroom. Students in Professor Greg Mankiw’s Economics 10 class walked out earlier this week, in a show of objection over his course matter. Find out why here.
– We all hope to spend our lives doing what we love. Sometimes, though, what we love doesn’t equal a pay check. Take a look at the top 10 majors with the highest unemployment rate and
the median incomes for those fields… that is, if you find work.
– Plagiarism is an unfortunate fact of college life and the internet has
only made things easier for students looking to copy and paste. A
generation or two ago, it meant taking phrases straight from a book or
even someone else’s paper without properly citing them. Today, though,
plagiarism is almost strictly cyber. Find out the number one source here.
