Education today

I figured it out….students are paying around $60 an hour for someone

They (full time students) spend around 21% of their waking hours in “Education”, hmmmm

  1. The Higher Education Bubble

    "Since 1961, the time students spend reading, writing and otherwise studying has fallen from 24 hours a week to about 15 — enough for a degree often desired only as an expensive signifier of rudimentary qualities (e.g., the ability to follow instructions). Employers value this signifier as an alternative to aptitude tests when evaluating potential employees because such tests can provoke lawsuits by having a disparate impact on this or that racial or ethnic group."

    Less Academics, More Narcissism

    "Even as UC campuses jettison entiredegree programs and lose faculty to competing universities, one fiefdom has remained virtually sacrosanct: the diversity machine.
    Not only have diversity sinecures been protected from budget cuts, their numbers are actually growing. "
