A degree should not be taught in abstract isolation

I love quotes, quips and epigrams and I love it even more when I can come up with my own. Here's one which captures my point of how we need to create work-ready, world-literate graduates and school-leavers.
"A degree should not be learned and then earned in abstract isolation from the working world all around us."    

Because as David Foster Wallace said:
"The value of education has nothing to do with education and everything to do with awareness."
 For as Michael Oakeshott said:
"Great achievements are accomplished in the mental fog of practical experience."
