The need for imposter students

Being a lead role in two high school musicals was one of the memories I look back on most fondly. If Economics didn’t exist, I definitely would have pursued acting as a possible career option. It wasn’t until 7 or 8 years later however until I realized that there are professional actors everywhere you look, they just arn’t on the movie screen. Acting is one of Americas biggest industrys, and anyone who takes on financial risk has to have a great poker face.
Where can acting be applied in our society that would do the most benefit? On the top of my list is public four year universities, specifically in new York state (the SUNY system). Public universities have all the educational requirements that more prestigious universities have. Where they lack is the quality of the conversations amongst students and the atmosphere in the classroom. Many people go to public universities who are not motivated to excel and are just doing “what society tells them to do”.
I propose that fake students infiltrate the classroom of these universities and act as if they were at Harvard. This will create the energy required to motivate the unmotivated to learn and become better people.

Who would fund the program? The private universities would love to make fun of it.

To get this funded from the state budget the program would need to be known to the point that it would leak to the public. Knowing about it would make any enthusiastic student a suspect and potentially not liked by the peers.

It would be difficult for the actor to keep up the act for an entire semester (or year?) without making friends with some of the students and confessing what their job is - thereby sabotaging it.

Darko Savic I had the exact same question. Usually, those who benefit the most pay the most. Here, the students will benefit and they should pay for the extra motivation they get from the actor students. However, if they are paying more, they will surely know how this extra money is spent. If they get to know about the imposters, the whole operation will be a failure, just like you mentioned.

Darko Savic What if it doesn't need funding? If the actor is not an actor, but a regular guy/girl who was thought to be ambitious through workshops, additional classes, and projects (in almost every class you have someone like this)? Instead of an actor's salary, he could receive scholarships. What do you nanapublicbgosh think on this?
It seems that we have a few examples of this already. What difference would it make if he/she is an actor?

And would it be better to hire an actor professor instead? Or just teach selected teachers and professors the managerial and soft skills? They could be motivated to continue learning, improving themselves, and also organize the classes in a more productive and dynamic way.

Hi darko. Can you enable Basic Attention Token compatibility for this website? Just like Reddit?
