Mike Rowe: COVID-19 Has Exposed How Expensive (and Unnecessary) College Is
There are a few silver linings coming out of the 'rona brouhaha (aka the New York City virus). Lots of government regulations we're seeing that don't need to be regulated in the first place. Many of the "green" initiatives (like banning plastic bags and straws), it turns out, are bad for your health. Also, we're seeing how unnecessarily expensive (and unnecessary in general) college is. Not to mention, it can be safer to take classes on Zoom (see VIOLENT LEFTIST ATTACKS COLLEGE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT AT SACRAMENTO STATE and ANGRY FEMINIST ATTACKS COLLEGE REPUBLICAN AT CHICO STATE).
Mike Rowe has been singing from the "cuck follege" hymnal for some time. Now he has data and evidence to back him up!
How COVID Has Revealed What College Really Is (Pt. 3) | Mike Rowe | LIFESTYLE | Rubin Report youtu.be
I think when the dust settles, higher education is going to be revealed for the luxury brand that it truly is, and when you take away all of the stuff that has nothing to do with learning or connecting, you're gonna be left with a breathtakingly overpriced product. ...
They're gonna find big thinkers with easily accessible ideas who are exponentially more interesting than professors, and soon, I hope, our obscene love affair with credentialing is going to stop, and we're going to pause in every imaginable way, and look at what is essential – not just in workers or in work, but in education, in food, in fun. Everything is going to be forced through a different filter.
Let's just separate college from grade school, so that we don't get mixed up with the Andrew Cuomos and Bill Gateses of the world who think we should "reimagine education" and keep kids from socializing until they can never get sick from anything ever. One guy has thousands of nursing home deaths on his hands. The other is responsible for Windows Vista (and 95). They could use more education. Or they should at least not speak in public any more.
But think of the student loans kids are told they need to take to succeed and the grossly expensive college they're told they need to attend if they want people to think they're smarter than someone who went to community college. Think about how easy it was to put everything on the internet and switch to telecommuting. You can take classes on Zoom and get the same education as if you went into debt going to a four-year university. It's going to be hard for those four-year universities to convince students otherwise now.
