EVERYTHING THE LEFT TOUCHES, TURNS TO CRAP.
The schools of higher learning in America are for the most part, literally oasis’s of totalitarianism in a sea democracy. They are overwhelmingly run by Leftists who pick the pockets of the public to sustain their status quo, iron grip-like monopoly. Check out this video found at Frank Kitman’s place. Shocking. KGS
FK: “College Conspiracy debunks many myths, including the belief that Americans with college degrees earn $1 million more in lifetime income compared to high school graduates without a college degree.
The most important basic fact that most Americans don’t understand about 4-year colleges is that most Americans spend 6 years attending them before graduating. With U.S. tuition inflation for private colleges averaging 5.15% over the past half a decade, assuming this same rate of tuition inflation continues, a college with tuition of $30,000 today will have tuition of $38,563 in the sixth year a student attends it.
In College Conspiracy, NIA analyzes the total cost to attend college by factoring in not just rapidly rising tuition expenses, but also the interest payments on student loans, and the lost income that college students would have earned if they worked at an average entry-level job that doesn’t require a college degree.”
This video comes off with it’s own agenda . . .as if sponsored by Phoenix online college or Gold Miners Federation. In all fairness, NIA does make some good points, but this film overlooked some extraneous factors. Yes, we all require food, energy, medical care, the last which was discussed in the film with the dentist who was indentured to her debt from the 1980’s. Our government’s destructive involvement (income redistribution) is expanding in all the other arenas as well. A recent post over at Ann Barnhardt’s blog discussed our government’s nefarious shenanigans w/massive land purchases which prove a detriment to the family farm and energy production.
The matrix for the next generation’s success is rapidly shifting and it’s difficult to assess the correct path for their future in this shape-shifting environment.
FWIW, my oldest received several very generous $cholarship offers for law school a few years back. While my spouse and I breathed a sigh of relief at such generous gifts, our son outright dismissed the offers, having discovered the fraud of 90% full employment advertised falsely by these institutions -exactly as mentioned in this film.
If a law grad received payment for passing out flyers or attending an open house at the university, (s)he was included in their ‘90% employed’ statistic .
