And that would be your business exactly how?
You sound like one of those fools that knows the COST of everything but the VALUE of nothing.

...not to mention, the cost is irrelevant

there are some of us in America who would rather do what they WANT to do for a living rather than make more money doing something they hate.

for the amount of time it took me to get two masters in theatre, I could have finished medical school

I didn't WANT to be a doctor. I didn't (and still don't) care that I would have made more money.

I realize that is the kind of mindset that a brain like yours simply can't wrap itself around.

But, it's called FREEDOM.

I find it facinating that some people, who are inarguably at the lowest level of intelligence one can have outside of an institute, engage in a higher education argument.

Congratulations. Moot though.

The point is the market is becoming flooded w/ worthless degrees. Scarcity equals value.

It is unfortunate that the person who makes my coffee in the morning has tens of thousands of dollars of school debt because someone led them to believe that a degree is lesbian basket weaving would be a good investment. Well, it was not. It was stupid


Higher education is not for everyone nor should it be.


That is the point that most people are making.

That shows you the level of knowledge they have of the subjects they choose to preach about.

This is from the same people who think that college should be free to all.


I don't care if someone wants to be a full time student I just don't want to have to cover their schooling and subsidize their incomes when the reality of life sets in.
