    HOW COLLEGE HAS BECOME A RACKET! I recently highlighted the STUDENT SERVITUDE SHAM operating in America but since then our continuing investigation (which I will summarize below) has  forced us to more appropriately label it a "racket"!   We define "racket" as a business activity which is misleading, not fully "above board" and takes advantage of
