The student research industry is based on scamming teachers; it is a cesspit

to those of you who complain that you've been scammed by unethical paper mills:

what were you doing in the first place? scamming teachers-- and you act surprised that you're now the victim of an industry that is full of, and run by, con-artists and scumbags.

ethics in the term paper mill industry is relative, depending on who you are, where you are, and who you work for. some companies are more blatant about serving you the piece of **** you deserve; others are more subtle.

the owners of term paper mills are pieces of human garbage who can't find a respectable way to make bread. term paper writers are the harried, compromised slave-accessories to these scumbags.

most writers have second and third jobs, or work for many companies, because term paper mill owners tend to keep the lion's share of the profits. some writers are busy trying to find an escape hatch. others are content to stew in the cesspit; either way, they are following the same credo: quantity over quality. any writer who denies this fact is using this forum to BS you.

some of you customers are real pieces of work. you climb into the sewer, and then you complain that it stinks. "are there any clean places in this sewer? can someone point me towards a nice place that smells of pine and wildflowers?" it's time to do a reality-check on your motivations and your expectations. look before you leap.

You made this post many months ago, but you're still here. I wouldn't deny the kernel of truth in what you wrote, even if it's a bit melodramatic. (The people in the industry are just typical people trying to make a living.) If it's so bad, why are you still involved at all? Why are you still active on a site entirely devoted to the industry?

Incidentally, aspiring teachers and working teachers needing my help with their theses and dissertations while pursuing advanced degrees in Education have been some of my most regular clients.

please note: this original post was addressed to customers, not random finger-pointers and peddlars. it was made, thankfully, before the mods deleted my ability to be seen by random potential customers (you can only see my posts if you are a member). which, to bring the matter back to topic, reminds me:, despite its recent whitewashing, is a cesspit, too.

Well, wasn't trying to call you out, or necessarily disagree that some aspects of the industry have cesspit qualities. Just saying. You seem to have a low opinion of the industry. Love-hate relationship?

I am marginally involved in the cesspit. it's important not to have illusions about this industry and where it places one in the larger scheme of things. I am not about to delude myself into thinking that my position in this industry makes me any sort of success as a writer, human being, or helper of others.

what were you doing in the first place?

Are the colleges and Universities not the same? They scam their students just like anybody else. For example, undergrads are cash-cows that sit in overcrowded classes, where no one has any desire, nor the capability to teach them anything. Their teachers are bitter and disillusioned grad students and adjuncts, same slave labor to the Unis and colleges. They work for laughable wages, have zero job security and can be fired at the end of every term. Grad school admits more graduate students than there are positions for them. Grad students are slave labor for Unis and their advisers.

Universities and colleges scam students just like any essay mill. They sell them overpriced, overhyped, worthless degrees and use slave labor to do so.

So please, this little rant of yours indicates you have no idea how modern higher education scam works. It is more sophisticated and masked scam, but in its core essence it is all the same. Unis and colleges have turned into corporations that support bloated administrative staff and sports (in the US at least). Education is secondary and not important.

oh, please! All Unis and colleges are scammers nowadays. They accept international students who cannot speak/write in English because of the income they bring. Then they leave these students to fend for themselves and to fail, as they do not give a hoot what will happen to them once the tuition is paid.

The whole education situation is one huge scam, be it student loans, inflated education costs, lousy teaching, cash-cows undergrads and even better cash-cows international students, slave adjuncts and grad students and I can go on and on.

Unis and colleges should stfu, because we do exactly what they do, plus they created this whole mess when they forgot what they should be and got greedy.

Good EducatorIt's important for any person who desires to teach students (young and adult ones) to be a good educator. That way students won't need much help with their writing assignments. I wrote a short essay on that; it may be helpful for students and educators:

Becoming a Good Educator: My Teaching Compentencies

Based on the competencies exercise, I plan to more fully develop each of my competencies by the spring. I plan to better understand child development because it is important in gauging the proper academic progress of each child, and also crucial in understanding the proper development of social behavior. Related to this is the competency for guiding behavior. My personal feeling on this issue is that whenever possible students ought to be encouraged to engage in social behavior. So when a bright child is spotted spending most of his or her time alone, it is right for the educator to gently encourage the student to join with his peers in play and conversation within the context of the classroom learning environment. I feel that a good grasp of all prominent theories of early childhood education is an important ingredient in being a good educator. There are bits in each of these theories that I believe are especially important and apply directly to the child in the classroom environment. Focusing too much on any single theory is risking not using the important insights present in other theories. When it comes to building family and community relationships I plan to use a hands-on approach. I do not believe that a young child benefits from an overly professional educator. Instead I believe that a child flourishes when he or she is able to develop a more rounded emotional connection and comfort level with their teacher, and this is achieved by fostering a real interest in the child's activities and family outside the classroom. In future I will look to develop creative and thorough means of assessment for both myself and my students as I believe in the importance of accurate assessment. Along these lines, I plan to better integrate new learning approaches and to keep an open mind in this respect. A commitment to diversity is one reason that new learning approaches are important; not every student learns the same way and new learning exercises that are inclusive can achieve both compassion for others who are different and better learning at the same time. My experience in after school programs has showed me the power of teaching with technology and this has got me excited to develop new ways to integrate it into my future teaching. I am excited to use my energy and passion to develop the competencies above in conjunction with my planned Master's degree in early childhood development.

Let's face it, education is no longer the vocation it once was. It is now a thriving, economics driven business run by a select few. Just like any business, there are back door dealings and unspoken movements that take place in order to keep the market going. Some grades are for sale, while most are not. Some professors really want the students to learn and work hard at their jobs, while others (not all) with tenure just breeze through the semesters because they know their jobs are secure no matter what.

Students use academic research and writing companies in order to help them cope with the fact that some of them came into college unprepared for what it required. That's why independent writers and academic research and writing companies have valuable services to offer the students. Education is just part of the marketplace now with grades as the main commodity available for purchase. How a student chooses to purchase this grade is his business.

Is it a scam? I would not call it that. There are after all, legitimate companies and independent writers out there. Everyone needs an education to get a good paying job. If the person hires some help in order to achieve that, then so be it. There is no deceptive act in helping a student get through his academic needs. The writers, both independent and company affiliated, do honest work. It is the fly by night companies and not so qualified independent writers that give the industry a bad name and make it look like a scam.

Generally, writing assignments are over-relied upon as a lazy way of "teaching." There's little purpose to make non-majors write research papers except in Research courses and Writing courses. It's a residual from traditional ways of teaching that are hundreds of years old. The same goes for requiring all college students to take "core" courses in languages or other disciplines in which many students already know they have no interest. By the time students are paying for their education after completing whatever education their states require, the decision of what to study should be theirs entirely and exclusively.

education ... is now a thriving, economics driven business run by a select few.

At present, there are more than 53,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. alone, and a gajillion more abroad. "Few" literally means a small group ...
