That isn't at all what I was saying.<quoted text>
A substantial potion, eh? Cool!
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.
The truth of matter... the kids I was referring to didn't really want to go to school in the first place... nor did they want to work. They just wanted an excuse for staying at home, and a BIG paycheck after they finished.
It all went downhill, IMO, when schools like that switched from a percentile grading system to a GPA/4.0 system. That way, the school could make the claim of producing more cream from the crop, so-to-speak... when, in actuality, they were doing just the opposite.
While I was instructing, they started offering an Associates program... about 6 more months for an extra $10... rounding the total tuition out at approximately $30K. At that point, technically, I couldn't teach students anymore... not the ones wanting credit toward an AS... even though the course material (what I specifically taught) was identical one way or the other. The school's admins claimed that a Master's was required for that. Many of the degreed instructors quit. I mean, crap... why would they have wanted to earn a Master's just so they could continue teaching at that crummy place?
On top of that...
Students wanting to transfer to the AS program would have had to retake any courses already completed under the tutelage of an instructor without a Master's. It was bullsh!t! The school wouldn't accept its own credits!
The moral of the story is...
The students should have attended a real school, an accredited one... where they actually would've been required to apply themselves... and probably spend less for it.
Don't knock a quality education, RR.
