It’s no secret that higher education costs are skyrocketing (the average price tag for one year at a private university in 2011 was about $33,000), while at the same time graduates are finding it increasingly harder to find decent paying jobs -- or a job, for that matter. Sure, the unemployment rate among college graduates is substantially lower than, say, the national average, but is it really worth spending four years in college accumulating hundreds of thousands of dollars in student loan debt only to face diminishing job prospects upon graduation? Perhaps it is. But the good news is that...
Most colleges are liberal hotbeds for indoctrinating young and impressionable youth. I can see why professors and college administrations would miss the face-to-face contact. Stupid is spending $40k-80k a year for a BA or BS. Unless your profession needs a full 8 year degree, that piece of paper is just that....a piece of paper.
