College used to be places of HIGHER LEARNING. A person went to college to advance their knowledge in their field of interest. Myself, I studied engineering and had a successful career working on, developing, and creating many interesting and diverse (not based on skin color) projects. Many of my friends and colleagues went on to further their knowledge by obtaining Masters and Doctorate degrees. Others of my friends obtained degrees and advanced degrees in the arts, music, literature, and theology. All of them have successful careers. A college degree to some is the holy grail that leads to success. In many cases is can be.
The value of a college degree is that the graduate has SACRIFICED, WORKED, and EARNED his sheepskin. Countless hours were spent listening, studying, discussing, debating, and testing ideas, techniques, and concepts. We learned not just individually but also to work collaboratively in order to succeed.
Earning a degree WAS an EXCLUSIVE process. NOT EVERYONE can succeed in college. At the college I went to, in my years, of the entering freshmen class, only 15% graduated from the college. The rest either dropped out or transferred to other schools.
All of the above means that a college degree indicates a level of expertise in one’s chosen field and additionally the possession of skills, traits, and tenacity required to obtain the degree.
Democrats BELIEVE in giving everyone COLLEGE DEGREES as part of their LEVELING of SOCIETY plan. They believe that if everyone has a degree, everyone will become successful.
How much value will a college degree have if everyone has one? The answer is about zero. College will become just an extension of high school. The taxpayers will collectively pay for children to delay becoming adults for four or more years. Perhaps we should call the Dumbocrat plan The “Peter Pan” University Plan. You never need to grow up.
The Dimbulbs are pushing for free “PUBLIC” university education. What they will create is a larger “wealth divide” as “PRIVATE” universities will become the only learning institutions that will be able to maintain their status as places of higher learning. PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES as I’ve said will just become paid high school extensions. Employers will look more seriously at candidates from PRIVATE universities over FREE PUBLIC universities.
The bottom line, IF everyone has a something, that thing has no value. If everyone had 1000 pounds of gold at home how much do you think you might be able to sell an ounce for?
But then again, I could be wrong about FREE college. I’m not as smart as a fake Indian.
