Bilge. Check out the resumes of half the CEOs of the largest American
corporations and you'll find they are English majors. You don't become
a leader by taking Finance classes. The value of a liberal education
simply can't be measured in dollars. It's absurd to try. Liberal education produces critical thinking, balanced perspectives, a sense
of history, and above all the understanding that most of what is valuable in
life has nothing whatever to do with one's wallet.
This artilce has been my argument for the last 30 years and it has taken the
government this long to establish what common sense could prove back then.
College students and parents and grandparents are stuck with paying their
children debts and school loans. The degrees may be good on paperwork but the
fact is there are no jobs for intellectual property or $100K individual income
to earn a million dollars in a life time. Now with common core
posing a dangerous threat to an eduction with its propaganda and censored and
twisted lies its going to take another 30+ years to figure it out that common
core wasn't so good after all. It gave schools billions of dollars to
blackmail and control education but in the process our country has regressed to
the economic conditions of the 1920's. And its getting worse
every time we allow more foreign nationals to think of us as their spoils of war
victory by occupation but don't have the same culture that created and
sustained this republic for 238 years. So we become an extension of
Tijuana and a culture of people so poor poverty is a rich mans way of life.
