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.
My God, kid. How do you ever work up the courage to crawl out from under your bed each morning and leave your basement room???

Yes. There are actual problems with diploma mills.

This is not the same thing as categorically condemning higher education.
Just because there are worthless MBA programs out there doesn't mean there aren't worthwhile MBA programs out there.

There are some "degree" schools that pop up, teach nothing of relevant importance, promise jobs and then place people in call centers to satisfy their claims of "100% job placement upon graduation".
And those places should be cracked down upon.

But for other, upstanding universities and colleges that actually teach things that will be used in the real world and whose degrees mean something to employers?
That's not the same boat.

It would be nice if you tried to talk about something real instead of meaningless hyperbole.

Ahhh yes. And there is the invariable attempt to put words in your fellow-right-winger mouths.

If all they were saying was "Higher education is not for everyone nor should it be", we wouldn't be having this discussion...

Do you appreciate that such a concept does not guarantee admission to anybody who wants it?

It would still involve college applications. Reviews. Standards for acceptance. People getting kicked out of college if they can't maintain their GPA.
It would involve real reviews of the curriculum to help weed out the "degree mill" crap I mentioned earlier.
Instead of the usual right-wing mentality solution for "degree mill" crap which is to claim that the free market should sort it out....

You lash out at so much you can't be bothered with comprehending...

I know, but you continue to post here anyway.

Man you use a lot of words to not say anything.


As I have said before. I believe that this is your MO to try and avoid having your babbling responded to.

Rather depends on what sort of institution you are talking about kid.
For example, Harvard and Yale are examples of institutions of higher learning.
Perhaps you've been hanging out in the wrong institutions?
You DO know, don't you, that an institute and an institution mean pretty much the same thing, right?
