Is the collegiate system one of the greatest forms of labor exploitation in America? Explain how this is so or how is it not so? I don’t believe the collegiate system is a form of labor exploitation.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
