I absolutely disagree with you. College is one of the places that really helps the self-realization of children. They can understand what they are interested in and what they want to do.

College has become the #1 barrier to Americans in order to enter into middle to high middle class lifestyles. If you go to college you are in debt for the rest of your life, if you don't go to college you are going to have a very hard time in the market. It is no longer serving it's intended purpose. Not only is not serving it's intended purpose but all of the programs taught in universities were previously apprenticed and could easily be apprenticed again. It doesn't stop there either. College are no longer bastions of free thinking they have become leftist ideological echo chambers and mafia's that indoctrinate your children into communist and globalist ideology.

Chicago Tribune

June 30, total household indebtedness was $12.29 trillion, 10.2 percent above the recent low of 2013, but 3.1 percent below the peak seen in 2008.

The most obvious candidate for the next bubble is student loan debt, which has ballooned to $1.26 trillion.

The next generation who is suppose to buy your houses, fund your 401k's and pensions is now in more debt than any generation ever. Welcome to the new control mechanism of the banking cartels and the New World Order.

USA Today


2015 graduates with student loan debt: 52%
Average debt: $24,849

North Carolina

2015 graduates with student loan debt: 61%
Average debt: $25,645


2015 graduates with student loan debt: 56%
Average debt: $25,840

Here we have a situation where more than 50-60% of these graduates having at LEAST $30,000 in debt they will be paying for potentially decades at incredibly high interests rates in an economy that's going to experience 60% automation in ten years and where the rest of the jobs are getting shipped overseas.


These corporations will be forced to train and fund a new workforce to collect their billions of dollars as it was in the past and as it should be now.

Time to put the power back into the hands of the many.

or maybe get a degree that catches up with the current times --- something with computer languages .... or learn cyber security ... another great field ---> these jobs will help pay of the debt (computer classes are boring as hell though)

I was able to get a job --> first interview (in computer industry -- there are many jobs)

(my story is that I didn't need to go to college to learn computer languages, but I did go to college for philosophy [not the smartest thing in present economy] -- but i would suggest that everyone else gets a degree in tech related field -- no matter what you want to do -- (either be a writer or whatever) --- at least you will have great chances of getting a job if your passion doesn't work out

Students sometimes need help. Some college assignments are not needed in real life. Students should learn their profession, not writing poetry. Many students use for writing even dissertations. I believe that this is absolutely normal, as students receive a bunch of useless tasks, and they have little time. The education system needs to be completely changed. It almost does not work. Good professionals are becoming less and less. We have to hire workers from other countries, but at the same time, there are no more jobs.

Or they can do what I did. Not wanting to be burdened by college debt, and not having rich parents to pay for my degree, I moved to Europe and went to a much cheaper college than what I could get the states(90 dollars a month), only 30 minutes away from the beach by walking, and the rent of the house I was living in(3 bedrooms + 2 bathrooms; big rooms) was far, far less than what I was going to pay in LA for a one-bedroom apt. alone!

Add to that the fact that the college was 90% female with thousands of female students coming from Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal and even Brazil, and most of them being young, naturally fit and pretty and... I have no idea why more and more fit young American males haven't thought about moving to a Sunny and cheap Euro Country to do what I did, LOL.
