    Class action law suit for useless degrees

    The fraud in education is totally out of control. Lend money to kids that have no understanding what they are getting into @ close to zero risk is big business. The cost of education is out of control with all the money thrown @. Where is the accountability for putting kids in debt prison for pretty much useless degrees ? Learning on the internet @ a fraction of the cost makes sense. Class action law suit could happen in the future.

    Liberal arts degrees have always been around, no lawsuits yet...

    Governments are slowly recognizing online education as equivalent or better than bricks and mortar education.
    Someone planted a tree a long time ago so I can sit in the shade.

    Not only are many of these degrees useless, some of them are outright propaganda and you'll actually leave far worse off than before you started.

    IMO this starts in grade school where we no longer teach youth about the real world and personal responsibility for choices and actions but instead cater to peoples feelings and promote socialist ideologies. Parents play a role in this of course too.

    I remember when I was in school, I was in a high tech stream. The problem was that, by the time a prof taught himself the material, then created the curriculum and the course materials, they were all out of date. I, on the other hand, had been reading the latest papers before going to school.

    By taking the courses, I had to stop reading the current materials and study the course materials, putting me behind in the field. The material I leaned, to get qualified, was out of date. Of course the paper said I was now an "expert", but I knew more than my profs going in.

    My experience with online education is this. For many students it works great. For many other students it works like this. The less motivated students (there are many) are the sheep. The in class instructor is the dog. The task of being herded into a pen is the educational experience. I think you get the picture I am painting. It is the same with fitness. Many people can do it alone others need a trainer. Not one size fits all. So we need to offer both brick and motor education and online education.

    In their late teens,early twenties ,humans are at the height of their breeding potential. So putting young men and women together could be viewed as a breeding experiment. Crossing smart with smart in order to produce smart offspring.

    Also friendships and business connections are made. Facebook got started on campus at Harvard. Mark Zuckerberg more or less took the idea from the Winklevoss
    twins when it was just a dating site for one university and ran with it. He also met his wife at Harvard.

    Its a dangerous path we're on, heck even on an investment forum we have people calling for (more) socialism! You should hear the moans and entitlement of many of my friends I grew up with who went to college and university for film school and gender studies degrees. They are having troubles finding work and making a living, but its not their fault, some invisible ghost is responsible for their place in life. Theirs no point in trying to better oneself, something called "patriarchy" is holding them down. So the government should just step in and make everything better by doing what they do best, taking money from those who've earned it, using half of it to pay government admin wages and pensions, then redistributing whats left of it.
