Recently, there has been a flurry of news coverage awakening to the reality that the student loan crisis is the next big bubble to burst. Though many media outlets have provided shallow commentary of what’s really going on, Michael Snyder of Business Insider cuts through the crap with a sharp critique of the American college education system. His “Sixteen Shocking Facts About Student Debt” exposes the facts that are often overlooked and foreshadows the peril that lies ahead.
Sadly, the quality of the education that most of these college students is receiving is a complete and total joke.
Take it from someone that has graduated from a couple of very highly respected institutions. I have an undergraduate degree, a law degree and another degree on top of that, so I know what I am talking about. Higher education in America has become so dumbed-down that the family dog could literally pass most college courses.
It is an absolute joke. The vast majority of college students in America spend two to four hours a day in the classroom and maybe an hour or two outside the classroom studying. The remainder of the time these “students” are out drinking beer, partying, chasing after sex partners, going to sporting events, playing video games, hanging out with friends, chatting on Facebook or getting into trouble. When they say that college is the most fun that most people will ever have in their lives they mean it. It is basically one huge party.
Of the little “education” that actually does go on, so much of it is so dedicated to pushing various social engineering agendas that it makes the whole process virtually worthless. Most parents would be absolutely shocked if they could actually see the kind of “indoctrination” that goes on inside U.S. college classrooms today.
A college education can be worth it for those in very highly technical or very highly scientific fields, or for those wanting to enter one of the very few fields that is still very financially lucrative, but for nearly everyone else it is just one big money-making scam.
