We have seen the future, and it sucks.

College Isn’t Higher Education and May No Longer Be the Best Way to Deliver the Goods

26th September 2017

Read it.

Many Americans are said to be turning against higher education. They may just be sick of an expensive and dysfunctional model that’s outlived its usefulness.

Used to be that a college degree indicated an acquaintance with the liberal arts and sometimes advanced scientific training. Nowadays all it indicates is what used to be considered a high-school level of education, and in a lot of areas (‘gender studies’ etc.) not even that, merely partisan indoctrination.

If I had a child, I would be hesitant to recommend going to college. There are so many resources for independent study available, and so many fields (e.g. IT) where a ‘college education’ isn’t really the necessary credential that it is assumed to be.
