I consider Technical Writing a core class for an Engineer. I don't consider Romance Languages, Renaissance Art Appreciation and Studies in Classical Music, all of which I had to take, as core classes. The University that I attended didn't give you the option of choosing your electives, you were assigned them. I didn't make too much of a fuss, at the time because my employer was paying for them. I did resent the WASTE of my time having to prepare for these classes, along with preparing for my core classes and working a full time job.

But why must quality suffer just because the product is free. Either way the system is broken. What i really meant by my post was why not improve the quality of the education while also making it accessible to everyone. Or am i to ambitious in thinking that a system like that is even possible?

And who pays for it?

No one needs to pay that is the point. We have the resources to be able to accomplish this so eceryone can get what they need, without having to use currency as a middle man.

The real problem is that the jobs aren't available once people graduate and it's time to begin the repayment.


Even if available, they simply don't pay at a rate that would allow repayment. Jobs requiring a 4 year degree that pay $35K a year. Seriously?
