‘More College Crapola’ (2017)

See the source image

It gets to be depressing, after a while–writing about what we like to call “higher education.” I don’t see how our country will survive the machinations of its so-called universities. Like f’rinstance:

More College Crapola

And it only gets worse, year by year. Tuition goes up, up, up and the quality goes down, down, down. The costliest and most intrusive “education” system in world history… and all it does is crank out idiots.

One comment on “‘More College Crapola’ (2017)”

  1. Unfortunately, a college “degree” has become a necessary credential toward getting any non-menial job — probably in part because the high schools have been churning out illiterates who can’t count. So the colleges became the new lower schools — but now that the colleges are also churning out illiterates who not only can’t count but don’t know how to work, corporations might do better to demand a demonstrable set of specific skills rather than any academic credentials. That would serve the companies better and might also encourage more young people (or their parents) to switch to schools that teach actual skills, as well as actual knowledge. I’m not just talking about technical subjects, either. Reading, writing, financial responsibility, and understanding everyday human behavior are important skills that companies once expected from college graduates. Now these skills can be considered job skills and taught as such. A bonus would be having well-rounded young people.

    Hey, I can dream, can’t I?
