Price of admission, right or wrong.Higher Ed has become the domain of radical leftists and I savour the day the socialist indoctrination camps known as colleges and universities crumble in the face of YouTube and online courseware available for free
Even the STEM fields are succumbing to progressive mental illness thinking like math is racist
Degrees are still required for vocations requiring certification like medicine and law, but everything else is available online for free
I’m disgusted by what’s happening. If I had to do it all over again with my son, home schooling would be the only option
And I say all this as a physics degree holder and computer science mentor at a top tier school
My daughter is in an accelerated doctorate program. All of it is paid for, and she receives a small stipend for lecturing and assisting. She's earned every bit of it, works harder than I thought was possible. She also works part time to afford her apartment.Schools today are catering to social justice and feelings instead of ability
Fuck them all
It wasn’t that way in my timeWhen have they not? It may be more apparent, but it seems like it's always been that way.
If it wasn't for SAT's both of my daughters wouldn't be in the positions they are in.It wasn’t that way in my time
Harvard just dropped the SAT for admissions
it’s also battling a class action lawsuit brought on by asians after being caught red handed freezing them out in the name of diversity
It seems that the word engineer has snuck in as a replacement for "operator", "mechanic", even trashmen are called "environmental or sanitation engineers"I am surrounded by computer engineers. The word Engineer is a fancy way to say moron. They know computer programing, PERIOD.
Seems like there is a renewed push towards this.The web has democratized all knowledge
Except where there is a compliance requirement, the schools can get fucked
AI and work from home will do to white collar jobs what globalization did to blue collar jobs
If I were in high school right now, I’d be taking a hard look at the trades, work that is highly localized and the time to automation is still decades away
I was never a motorcycle technician, I was and still am a mechanic. But...my title at work is Facility Engineer. Maybe I'm a moron too.It seems that the word engineer has snuck in as a replacement for "operator", "mechanic", even trashmen are called "environmental or sanitation engineers"
True, but it can vary from place to place. Some call them architects, others engineers or developers. Also depends on specific responsibilities... i.e. design and develop or production support.that term is usually developer...
engineer even in IT usually reflects on the network infrastructure and hardware...not the code
