wow THIS THO
Someday, I hope to actually laugh at these comics.
but seriously fuck people who think our generation had everything handed to us. we may not be first generation college students, but we’re paying double/triple what you paid for an education of more questionable quality. i’m not saying we don’t have it better, but we’re not as lazy as you think.
The stupid thing about these comics is that it address the fact that you don’t need to go to college to get a great paying job. The American college system is now a business and not an academic system. Tuition and books should only cost around $200 to $500 a year max!
Books in general should only cost what it costs to print them plus 10% for profits toward the professor that wrote the book.
The school should raise money for its growth and upkeep through extra events like sports, special guest lecturers, and other donated academic gifts.
But there is really no reason for kids to go to college when 90% of them wont use the degrees they pay for. Degrees that don’t actually mean you can do a job well or have interest in said subject.
Most people find work in a field they either have interest in or natural talent or some developed skill in. In most of those fields experience trumps degrees.
Lastly, you can get into a field that you enjoy and then use the money you make doing that job to pay for the schooling that is directly related to your field getting certs and degrees that actually mean something to you and your work.
Don’t believe the lies of college heads. They want you to go to college so they can live the good life scamming America’s youth.
Its not just the colleges telling everyone they need a degree. I heard it from everyone growing up. Teachers, parents, employers, other kids. The fact presented to me constantly was if I didn’t get a job I’d be digging ditches or flipping hamburgers for the rest of my life. Also, going to a vocational school was apparently for losers (who I now know make more money than most anybody I know so who’s really the losers eh?) so the only choice I had was university
