the second one is not a girl trying to sue her school, but another example of blinding following the path of "college education = money and a job". Seems more and more kids and their families these days don't stop to ask some important questions before going to school:

1. What do I want to do with my life?
2. Can this education help me do that?
3. Can I pay for the education myself or do I need loans?
4. Will there be a job market for me out of school?
5. Will landing a job in that market provide me enough $$$ to repay my debts?

Seems some high school grads these days (with a push from their parents) only address #1 and forget the rest.
