Yes I have said it. Yes I know it's not the teachers fault they do not have control over the curriculum.

We educate people for nearly 20 years and almost 60% of them graduate with degrees and no marketable skills. Ok, so 18 year olds make bad choices under poor guidance, I get it. I do not hold 18 year olds solely responsible for the choices they make, after all I was a total moron until I hit 25.

I have been teaching kids for years and something I have come across is that they are in fact more teachable than adults and learn at faster paces and with the right attention are equally as skilled. My position is that if we focus our education system less on well roundedness and more on specialty we will achieve higher grades of success and our populace will be far more skilled and able to achieve more professionally and personally.

This issue not only exist at lower levels of education but it also exist in higher levels of education as well.. look no further than the accreditation program of the US.

Here in our Cyber Security degree we have what I can only consider to be a COMPLETE WASTE OF VALUABLE TIME!

Cyber security is a totally massive topic that requires very high technical skill and leaves business most at risk. Now why in the hell are they wasting students time on health classes when they should have learned that in elementary school??

We need to start making big changes in this country and we need to do it soon.

My solution to this problem is to decentralize the entire process and give schools and teachers the autonomy they need to create programs that compete with other autonomous systems. Competition is the driving force behind innovation and parents will be able to choose to put their kids in the most successful and well programs this country should have to offer.

What more do you want: www.khanacademy.org...

And then there's google searches and youtube videos. My God, students can do anything at this point. Education has never been so rich in the history of mankind!

The student curriculum is irrelevant. Students are in school to learn how to learn.

They go to college to learn how to learn??

What did they do for 12 years before that??

PS CBT Nuggets and Pluralsight are way better, oh and Linux Academy!

It's no longer education, it's indoctrination.

It has nothing to do with Republicans and Democrats it has everything to do with the centralization of education and the way the accreditation program is managed and funded.

Before you vomit more partisan crap, let me ask you an honest question.


Are 18 year olds smarter today than they were 50 years ago?

Best vote for the democrats and people like Bernie Sanders who actually care about the lives of people who aren't wealthy.


The free markets and eliminating government backed loans and subsidies for these "universities" is the first few steps needed to take in order to fix the system.

Larger bureaucracies and more centralization and higher taxes cannot fix the mess the government already create.

Getting the government out of business is the only way for this to be fixed.

Sanders was not the solution.
