I know plenty of tradesmen who earn a far better living, and incidentally, are far more brighter, than nearly all college graduates I know in my age
The drive to turn universities into remedial high school, or, 'You need College to make any kind of living!' is based purely on the premise of
funneling ever more student loan $ directly into university coffers.
High school grads often spend their first year of state & community college in HS level English, Math, Science, History, etc... which is where you see
the failing of public school in stark reality.
Its an exploitation by the academic elite of the young & naive (once again, and just one example) who often end up owing $200k for their degree in
Underwater Basketweaving and wonder why they can't get a job bagging groceries. After all, they have a fancy, expensive college degree!
Electrician, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, etc... all have apprenticeships and they can't get enough kids to be interested. Getting your hands dirty is
just so, well... icky & stuff!
College, notably liberal arts schools are responsible I think, for the proliferation of leftist mush-head graduates who reliably mistake Education for
Intelligence. One can observe this phenomena everywhere and I am certain its not a coincidence.
There are many practical college courses that are not worthless, unlike Urban Lesbian Minority Studies which won't even get you a job cleaning office
buildings, for example.
Media production degrees are still valuable as they actually teach you how to use the tools and typical workflow process. Many business degrees are
useful, and medical training is highly useful, pharmacists alone are in great demand, pay 60k right out the door, but math and chemistry is like, hard
But, professors need to be funded, universities need to build more elaborate, worthless buildings, so you kids need to line up enslave yourself to
whopping student loans!
Or better yet, get enough to vote for taxpayers to directly fun bloated universitys by making them pay for your loans!
