Have you ever wondered what all those college students are actually learning? Well, according to one shocking new study, they are apparently not learning much at all. According to very extensive research detailed in a new book entitled “Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses”, 45 percent of U.S. college students exhibit “no significant gains in learning” after two years in college. For many Americans, a statistic like that comes as a complete shock, but for anyone that has spent much time in or around U.S. colleges lately this should not come as much of a surprise. This new research also found that today’s students spend approximately 50% less time studying than U.S. college students did just a few decades ago. What this research shows is what many of us have known for a long time – that the quality of college education in the United States today is a complete and total joke.
The following are a few more of the shocking results from this study….
*35% of U.S. college students spend 5 hours or less studying per week.
*50% of U.S. college students have never taken a class where they had to write more than 20 pages.
*32% of U.S. college students have never taken a class where they had to read more than 40 pages in a week.
So what in the world are all of these college students doing all day long?
Well, according to the study, U.S. college students spend 24% of their time sleeping and 51% of their time socializing.
Oh, and they spend about 7% of their time studying.
Personally, I have had the chance to spend quite a few years on college campuses. In a previous article, I described what life is like for most “average students” enrolled in our colleges and universities today….
The vast majority of college students in America spend two to four hours a day in the classroom and maybe an hour or two outside the classroom studying. The remainder of the time these “students” are out drinking beer, partying, chasing after sex partners, going to sporting events, playing video games, hanging out with friends, chatting on Facebook or getting into trouble. When they say that college is the most fun that most people will ever have in their lives they mean it. It is basically one huge party.
So with all of this free time shouldn’t all of these students be able to pass their courses and graduate on time?
Well, perhaps they should, but it just isn’t happening.
Federal statistics reveal that only 36 percent of the full-time students who began college in 2001 received a bachelor’s degree within four years.
So… we can divine from the study on what college students are actually learning that diploma-mill institutions are all over the place, and exist to do little beyond collect their tuition.
That’s no surprise; any place that there’s a lot of money, there are also a lot of vultures. The vultures will make out like bandits. SOME COLLEGES ARE FAKE INSTITUTIONS, JUST EXISTING TO TAKE YOUR MONEY FOR NOTHING. It is sad that some of those who have topped or come in the top three have not been admitted so far because they failed their degree exams. However, they do stand a chance of making it into affiliated colleges as the results of instant supplementary exams would be out by the third week of July,” he said.
However, the authorities observed that such candidates cannot claim fee reimbursements for money spent. Admissions to various post graduate courses offered by Andhra University (AU) and the 100-odd affiliated colleges have been marred largely because of the decline in the pass percentage in degree colleges, which has fallen from 50% last year to 30% this year.
In some cases, affiliated degree colleges have recorded single-digit pass percentages, according to sources in the university. As a result, with more than 13,000-odd seats up for grabs in the various post-graduate courses being offered, university authorities are facing a situation where there are too few takers for too many seats. http://www.universitiesnews.in/2013/06/
