  • My biggest problem with college and university isn't even the fact that they offer useless degrees. My biggest problem with the whole thing is parents manipulating their kids to go to college and not even pay for it. If College is University is something that society requires, then society should pay for it. If society doesn't want to pay for it, then don't make it a requirement. Pretty damn simple.

  • You'll make more money right off the bat being a power lineman or boiler maker or ANYTHING in tradesmanship/technical job that doesn't require a degree. Universities are a thing of the past. Plus You have big companies starting their own Universities to make tailor made degrees for their own purposes.

  • If you took that $ and invested it aggressively, you would more than make up the benefit of a college degree. If you are already from a relatively prosperous family and you are not going to get scholarships, you need to aim from high school to hard skills and invest. I doubt you are in much danger of a death from despair. College is likely not worth it to you unless you from the plutarchracy so your mom’s connections can get you that SJW sinecure you crave.

  • I think college is only essential for work that requires licensure like doctors, nurse, Engineer, Architects, Lawyers and ETC.. But for most jobs, I don't think we need to go to college. I am a multimedia artist and after finishing college I got a job on a local studio where they didn't even ask if I had a degree, they just asked my previous work and portfolio. Then I went to being a freelancer and all of my clients didn't ask if I have a degree.. They just usually ask for my portfolio and previous work related to their projects.

  • Why not tax the top 10% of income earners and 0 taxes for the other 90%. Pass legislation that says the top 10% cannot hide money overseas. They stole it from the bottom 90% it would be immoral to let them hide their booty overseas. Why not just say that, 60% of Americans will vote for that candidate? The congress will need to also pass legislation that says if you moved your money overseas because you saw the legislation coming, there will be penalties for that. Socialism for the top 10% and capitalism for the bottom 90%.

    • I understand where you're coming from but not a lot of people have business tactics to pull it of for example me, and if no students went to college you wouldn't have people doing some jobs which require professional qualifications. So I think there should be a balance students who are academically smarter and wanna pursue college let them and students who wanna do a startup after high school or pursue dance,music,painting etc... Can do that so you get a balanced society

  • We legit pay 10 lacs as our med school fees and funny thing we just have online classes , they would mark us absent if we complain against bad connections , during exam we have to sit at quieter place, even the traffic noise is our problem. now another thing in our third years we have to go for rotations then attend online class for lectures. We pay so much but get nothing. Like its more like pay your fees , then your whole attention and time because your teacher is going to keep assignment deadline at 4am.

  • It's common misconception when people extrapolate college degree profit for individual to entire society. It is wealth distribution mechanism instead of wealth generation. Many studies prove it. Degree inflation is one evidence you can almost touch with your hands. It's not about college graduates earn more, it's about non-graduates earn less. It's like personal money printers, you have extra money for you, but actually you steal money from society.

At the end of the course she forgot to submit grades so we all got an incomplete for the course and had to wait for the grades to be amended.

    • @Anjana Menon You right, I should've been more specific. If you want to go into the field of Education, medicine/health care, science, engineering, or law, then yes go to college. But if any of those types of fields and subfields that are under them aren't your main interest, then you probably don't need college. There might be a few more exceptions, but if it's not STEM, Law, or Medicine, you can probably learn about it without college.

    • Dude if everyone becomes a construction worker who will take care of the health sector, the engineers who design the buildings so on. I mean I get your point, if professionals increase there wouldn't be people to do these jobs (like plumping, barber, construction worker etc..) And vice versa. So there should be a balance in the society

  • Just to give readers an idea of just how competitive the job market is and has been in recent years...I have two college degrees, including a Master's degree, and I've been substitute teaching for $12.00 an hour. Therefore, it 's not a mere coincidence the national studen-loan debt is astronomically high. IN AMERICA, THERE ARE TOO MANY EDUCATED AND JOBLESS PEOPLE. What we need is a UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME. Everyone keeps overlooking this inevitable discussion when it should've happened years ago. The job market is absolutely ridiculous. Pepole are being denied jobs for not having their shoes shiny enough. That's how picky employers can afford to be in a highly-competitve job market. The American government must stop teasing jobless Americans with these temporary fixes. Solve the matter, once and for all, and roll out a Universal Basic Income.

  • I loved my college experience and I would do it again but that's because I went to a public school and my student loans were "low" in comparison and I can pay them without an issue. I see why some people say that we are choosing to get student loans to attend schools we know are expensive. People definitely make decisions that they clearly didn't research but the cost of college has gotten ridiculous and compare that with the reduced investment by many states in public colleges, this crisis was a train reck in the making. Those things were not elected by us. Nor are we the ones devaluing community colleges or vocational trainings. We didn't decide that student loans couldn't be discharged in bankruptcy. If colleges weren't so expensive and everyone had equal access, I would be the first person to say, "well, nobody forced you to take out all those loans. Work harder and them back", buy that's not the case.
