Would anybody even go to see the film …::: ‘WIKILEAKS’ FILM FLOPS … So, it’s another in a long string of Hollywood flops … Getting to be a pattern.

I quit going to see films years ago … Netflix does all I need. That way I watch what has already been tested.

Really, Why Would You Think

Studying useless subjects would have any value to anyone … :: “Over two-thirds of Americans (68 percent) believe that degree programs currently cost more than they are worth and 36 percent said that the cost of a degree has risen disproportionally to its value in the last five years.”

Full report here.

Why Colleges Are Failing You

September 12, 2013

Students listen up … Only 16% of the 420K students in the CA State University system graduate within 4 years.

Those are some shocking numbers, aren’t they? Daniel K. Lautzenheiser of the American Enterprise Institute has written a lengthy piece on various aspects of higher education

The CA system also has more administrators than it has faculty. Something seem wrong with that, to you?

Read the original article:
Getting more bang for our college bucks (The American Enterprise Institute)

Me, I worked my way through college it took me 6 years to get my engineering degree, it’s what you do when you have no money, you work.

Four In Ten College Grads Don’t Need A Degree For Their Work.

A majority of American workers have jobs that do not require a college degree, according to a new Gallup poll. This finding wouldn’t be particularly surprising if it were only blue-collar workers saying this, but the poll also found that four in ten college grads agreed that they don’t need a college degree for the work they do.

It’s not exactly a shock at this point that college grads haven’t been able to make the most of their degrees, but when nearly half of the country’s college students are wasting money on degrees that they believe have done nothing to prepare them for their jobs, there’s obviously a problem.

These findings can’t be chalked up entirely to undergraduates’ poor choices; college degrees have increasingly become prerequisites for jobs that could easily be performed by high school grads. In many cases, employers are just looking to a college degree as a quick signifier of an applicant’s determination and work ethic, not as a sign of skills learned.

Perhaps there’s a way to reform the employment system so we stop wasting time and money on degrees that are only useful as behavioral signifiers. What would this kind of reform look like?

For starters, it would seek to separate training from education, so that students could accomplish the former as quickly and conveniently as possible without necessarily taking on the latter. This likely means a shift away from the four-year college model for many, toward something that looks more like vocational training, with a greater focus on specific skills and less focus on campus life and subject diversity.

Next, it would reduce dumb bachelor’s degree requirements, so that job seekers and employers could be brought together based on aptitude and achievement tests rather than meaningless but expensive paper credentials.

Old-school academics may balk at these general ideas, but they shouldn’t; none of this has to mean the end of classical education as we know it.

So maybe this is why you can’t get jobs, no one what you have. Women studies grads hardest hit.

Hey it’s just a joke.
