[My father's] students are cheating, and when he catches them, they fight about it, instead of being shamed. Being a professor seems pointless to him in this context. Makes sense. What's the point of teaching when people just want the grade, not the education.

In business and government these days, it seems that it's all about money. In school, it's all about grades. They're related.
