A substantial potion, eh? Cool!<quoted text>
I'm not degreed either... and, frankly, was a little outraged myself... not at Wendy's or at the former student's new employers... but, at the whiners.
I was there, instructing part time, for the extra income >>> at $8/hr, 15-20 hrs a week!
So, fugg 'em!
Here's another fun fact...
I attended that same school in the early 90s. Back then, tuition was right at $10K for one year of instruction... 8 hours a day, 5 days a week... and a substantial potion of it was hands-on. Students actually received exposure to the equipment they were being told about (Cisco, NetGen, various lab tools and rack-mounted appliances, etc.).
In '05, the same course of study costed slightly more than $20K.... again, for one year... but, classroom time was reduced to 5 hours a day, 4 days a week... with very little equipment to lay hands on, other than PCs.
IOW >>> Twice the cost for half the instruction!
It's nothing more than a diploma mill these days.
Lol, but you're so right. Kids today are getting brainwashed into thinking the only way through life is with a degree. And parents have gotten duped into thinking they have to pay for college...
I done diddly done do done did told my boys that if they want to go to college, either star saving or get a scholarship. I ain't payin fer it.
