The problem in the Campus Chasm is that we advertise a wrong image and standard, setting up perspective of the work done in colleges to prepare students, when at the end, the reality ends up being another one. When it comes down to having to indicate the issue that is causing student to not receive a proper education, we need to step back and look at the big picture, who is really responsible for it.
As a student mentioned in the article, “College is about more than just classroom assignments or activities outside of class.” This quote has a lot of truth in it; as the student stated, it was not something he really analyzed, but something he simply heard.
The solution is simple, lets analyze the situation and lets truly educate our students, provide the necessary tools to be critical thinkers instead of followers or imitators. There has to be enough and strong expectations from students in order for college to truly get them ready for the real world once they graduate. It is a collaborative responsibility to be able to make a difference.
