You learned nothing in college, by your own admission.
Yet, you claim to know enough about how higher education works to replace it for less than 1% of the cost.
When I calmly explained to you why your conclusions were incorrect, you refused to grant my argument any legitimacy. Now you have extended your prejudice to include every single person who has a degree (i.e. who is smarter than you) in an intellectual field.
Sounds like you’re the liberal one here. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out of the thread.
I have a liberal arts undergrad with a Juris Doctorate post grad. I have been a practicing attorney for over 25 years and I am a certified expert in my field of practice. I borrowed a total of $12,000 to get all my degrees.
Frankly I could have learned all the crap I learned in Law School by just studying and participating in online courses. There was nothing magical about the classroom experience that made me what I am.
The only reason people think they need a degree from a Brick and Mortar university is because they think they need a degree from a Brick and Mortar University. As this article points out, today a 4 year degree in anything other than pre-med, engineering or chemistry is not worth the paper it is printed on, much less the $200,000 that some people are borrowing to get one.
I worked full time while going to law school. I had three kids at the time. I didn't spend my days going to school and my nights drinking and partying and borrowing money that I hoped I'd never have to pay back and that the government would one day forgive.
Sounds like youre the liberal one here. Dont let the door hit you on your way out of the thread.
LOL. I'm not the one arguing for keeping the unsustainable status quo. I'm arguing for conservative solutions to the high cost of education. You're just mad because my solutions might just bring down your salary and are threatening your distinguished career as a "Literature" Professor.
Are you actually encouraging your current students to get a degree in Literature? Do you know how many Starbucks baristas have advanced degrees in Literature and English and Women's Studies and other stupid liberal arts subjects? I would venture to say MOST of them. Most of the rest are either on the unemployment lines or sitting in some "Occupy Something" protest and refusing to bathe.
