Why can't you just say that you are against lowering of educational standards?

It wouldn't kill you to agree with me.

How many times do I have to say it before it sink in your thick head?

Making universities money doesn't seem to be the argument given for any required courses.

Seems to be a good argument against it.

College should be the road to a career.

IMO requiring people to pay for courses that do not help them to that career is one of the reasons college graduates are so in debt.

For me it is because you are claiming that the proposal in the article is a lowering of standards when it isn't.

No, it goes against it. If I was offered a more complete education, college wouldn't have been so daunting, and all the extra learning I did outside of a classroom would have been to master rather than get an amateur grasp on things. As it is I never went to college because I didnt think I needed it. I didnt "need" it. I REALLY could have used it.

Before I showed up to college my first day, I would have been better served by teachers that taught rather than administered state tests,

The best teachers were the ones that taught what THEY knew they had to in THEIR classrooms.

The ones that filled our minds with everything they could. Not just the passing answers. What even is all this?

We are talking about accommodating kids who slipped through the cracks and showed up unprepared to higher learning institutions and trade schools.

I say they should sue their old teachers and ask them for either a refund on their tuition or more time in their classrooms to catch up.

Because you haven't said it.

You play both sides of the fence.

Yu lay both sides of the fence.

I have said it several times.
Let me write it in crayons for you: no I am not against raising of education standards and making people smarter.
Do you need play doh clays to help you understand?

No, it goes to show that the opportunity to get your hands on that info is there.

That was all I said.

For your replies, probably.

But that's because I'm more of a binary thinker.

You're either right or wrong, in my opinion.

Maybe I'm just not as smart as you.

No you said we should limit what we teach people to their profession.

I think thats retarded. I never learned to not be vulgar.

And I think you just can't see the nuance.

A non tech professional that can't do algebra can still be at the top of their field and even concidered well rounded.

Your argument is circular and a non sequitur.

No I said that knowledge has priority. Everything else doesn't need to be a requirement.

No.

I see you as a proponent of limiting and narrowing of education.

That is the antithesis of freedom.
