Thoughts on NY Times Credits for Internships

repost from NYTimes comments

Often, for example at Teachers College, students pay for tuition and then are required to spend a certain number of hours at internships or sometimes called externships where they are not paid. So the students end up literally paying to work. Schools should not require students to pay full price for credits earned in internships especially when these credits do not count towards graduation as sometimes occurs according to Carey.
