Is College really the path to success? More experts are saying 'no'

Posted May 15th, 2010 by Grey

This graduation season, some experts challenge whether four-year degree is path to success.

The notion that a four-year degree is essential for real success is being challenged by a growing number of economists, policy analysts and academics. They say more Americans should consider other options such as technical training or two-year schools, which have been embraced in Europe for decades.

College is a big fat joke and is not a requirement!! Laugh at anyone who tells you that you cannot be successful with out a degree. Don't work for any employer that wont promote you because you don't have one! Leave any company that JUDGES you based on credit. College was a complete rip off for me and is for everyone that spends hard earned money getting a masters degree that cost you 60 to 100 thousand dollars! These colleges offer no guarantee of placement, but they will guarantee to ruin your credit if you don't pay them after they fleece you! We have systematically place college in place for society. Not hiring someone because they have bad credit is just as much of a joke and is also systematic. its a undercover way to separate the classes. people need a job and are willing to work hard, pay them the money they can pay the bills. i would not allow any potential employer to check my credit. its non of your fucking business, cause you are delving in to my personal life and situations that were are and should never be none of your fucking business. because people have bad credit does not determine the person that they are and how they handle life. college leaves more people broke and in dept through loans that they cannot pay off because they don't have the CREDIT or work EXPERIENCE to get the job to pay off this ridiculous dept! college is required should be an agreement by employer and employee for training and retention of a EXPERIENCED employee. You get training from us, and we pay for it, you stay with us, until a said date or a certain percentage can be charged back to the employee that may take that training and experience elsewhere. Everything I have learned as an IP ENGINEER, Graphic Designer in the high tech field is all self taught. I have a degree in business administration that GOT ME NO JOBS, my experience and certifications I attained after college did. My peers that are just as successful and if not more DIDNT SPEND A DAY IN COLLEGE. WTF?! College like the prison system, like this joke of a credit system, and tax system is all a big fat joke! I look at the way my peers and I who haven't gone to college for our field in Graphic Design and IP Techs compared to those who are all scholarly; our resolve and ideas are more creative and OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. In other words, it is not pre-programmed like going to college is and actually has some relevance to the field. Tooooo funny! Give somone 20,000 to 100,000 dollars in dept for school, and then don't give them a job. Makes total sense doesn't it? Who is it making CENTS to though?! COLLEGE IS BULLSHIT! Coming from someone who spent 6 years and paid student loans, and just because I was late making that payment cause i didn't have a job right after college and they expect you to start paying immediately after you are out of school, you don't want to hire me. FUCK YOU YOUR COLLEGE AND YOUR COMPANY! of course--------- anything for that joke transunion to line their pockets, they should be more concerned with protecting peoples credit. bastards. what have they done to help with credit fraud? NOTHING!!!!!!!!
