what they need to do is limit loans to only valuable courses no money for stuff like public speaking and the like instead focus on sciences, mathmatics, engineering , medicine. we waste to much money helping kids get worthless degrees.
was going to take a class at local college years ago and one of the courses was ebonics i got up and walked out.

I personally am appalled of the thoughts and beliefs of the proffessors and teachers at the schools and universities. Not only do I disagree with them I find it hard to pay a ton of money to send my kids to listen to them. I hope they do attend college with the mindset to obtain the knowledge without the extracurricular beliefs of the teachers. I wonder what percentage of college staffs are far left and trying to push it on young people.

Well, yeah, I did. But the help didn't even come close to being enough to avoid hefty student loans. I'm already in debt for my house, my car and my motorcycle. There's no way a student loan would be doable.

Universities were originally set up for strictly higher learning, if someone wanted a career they apprenticed under a master in the field of choice.

Hard sciences tend to be less concerned about school rankings. My point though is that most schools are not worth the massive tuition bills. It is one thing to pay $60k/yr to attend say Stanford with excellent job prospects at graduation vs $50k at say a fourth tier school. If you are going to pay a lot to attend, it needs to be a top tier school IMHO. This is why I said there are really only about 50 schools that are considered prestigious and worth going into debt to attend.
The school loan system has allowed bottom tier schools to charge top tier tuition, but the ROI is not the same for most students.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Apple university teach free public college courses? If I remember right, they were definitely bussiness courses...
As well as other universities as of 2-3 years ago, pretty sure i saw them posted on ARE 🤔
