Getting a PhD is not just getting a degree. Some of the students that choose this path in their lives are who just simply enjoy learning. Notwithstanding all the data that was presented in the piece called “PhD factory” in scholar website, I believe that simply counting the number of PhD graduates is not the correct way to deal with this degree of knowledge. How many of you know someone is going back to school to just win back the active life of learning. Personally, I know at least 5 of them. This group already have good jobs and good life and do not expect back anything out of their new degree. To have a more precise paper, I believe, the writer should run a statistical study to find the percentage of this group and phase it out of his/her study.
