i hate how, for some reason, there's now this weird stigma against college. i don't understand how wanting to learn more about what you enjoy could be a bad thing. I'm going to major in chemistry and hopefully help the world somehow after i'm done with school. how is this bad?

If you want to go and learn, that's great, and something you should do.

It's the idea preached by education that if you don't finish highschool or college, then you can't live successfully, or happily, and that college is a must.

Which it isn't.

Because most people don't like viable fields and go for liberal arts degrees that net them a job as either a teacher or a welfare recipient.

Jacked up college prices cause students to amass a whole mess of debt, causing them to live for the rest of their lives in debt unless they grab themselves a job paying 60,000+ per year.

And a few other reasons.

another problem is the stigma we've had for years against working in a trade without college. Right now college is expensive as hell partly because our schools are overcrowded because everyone without a degree has been looked down on for the last 30 years. Whats wrong with being a plumber or HVAC technician? Those are skilled crafts that make damn good money, but theyre seen as illiterate rednecks.

Yeah well its not like it's the college's fault, it's human nature that's at fault. The government puts out all of these student loans allowing people not fit for college to go, letting them gain useless degrees with no future instead of allowing them to move into the work force fresh out of high school and attain various skills that way. Then the colleges jack up their prices in response to the guaranteed money coming in from the government, which makes it harder for people who actually want to go to college to learn a trade or gain valid experience, and with everybody flaunting the fallacy of "Oh well you NEED to go to college or you will amount to nothing" lots of these people who don't receive aid go anyways and amass hundreds of thousands in debt, only to gain enough experience to go into a mediocre field.

So basically everybody's butthurt because they have no idea how to manage their life (which by the way they don't even teach in college for obvious reasons).

Guess we're lucky here. In Belgium atleast, the system is built so that everyone willing enough can get a chance to study.. student funds payed by the government depending on your social and financial situation, providing cheap living quarters if necesary. My friend's parents are divorced. He lives with his dad and due to the fact he can't provide anymore due to an accident at work, the government pays for his entire education.

The moment they see you're not doing your best and keep failing though, you can lose it all, but that's only fair.

aside from that, no, not having a diploma doesn't make you dumb, ofcourse it doesn't. and yes, it's sometimes unfair that people get the jobs just because of their education, but don't elude yourself by thinking a university education is worthless... "accurately repeat"? on the contrary, university is where you get encouraged to stand alone and get **** done without any help.

Yeah OP, go ahead and use your street smart intuition to construct bridges able to sustain heavy traffic, superior methods for brain surgery and a well-working, just political set of regulations which are fair to everyone. Or you can just keep inserting male genitals into your mouth.

You're forgetting something. People want to learn things, which other people will know of course, so they can use that knowledge to help others or gain more knowledge that no one else knows. Example: I plan to become a historian, maybe own a museum or at least work in one and if I get the chance, I will go and do archaeology and **** like that, so I can uncover more history to share with the world.

And you, OP, are telling me that because I have to learn things to uncover new things, I'm stupid? Everyone, the greatest inventors and scientists in the world had to learn their **** from somewhere in order to BECOME so great, but since they learned things that other people already knew, they are stupid according to this logic.

TL;DR, stop this **** .

You have to be a follower before you can become a leader.
User avatar #15 to #12 - holdup (11/27/2012) [-]
how does that work? and in what sense do you mean that.
User avatar #16 to #15 - RefrainFromTouchin (11/27/2012) [-]
where would a leader get their morals and ideals if they never were taught/followed someone else and picked up their beliefs?
User avatar #17 to #16 - holdup (11/27/2012) [-]
if leaders were all followers, then what was the advent of ideas?
User avatar #18 to #17 - RefrainFromTouchin (11/27/2012) [-]
Perhaps the future leaders were inspired by a combination of ideas or variations of a concept. Like how a writer gets an idea for a book from doing every day activities. The idea of the book never existed before, but by witnessing others the writer made it come into existence

If a person runs every day of their life and is fast, then they are allowed to say that they are faster than a fat person who never runs. The fat person can flail his arms and say "if I worked out I'd be faster than you" but guess what, he's still fat.

Keep pretending like flipping burgers exercises your brain, and hating on people who decided that building their intellect was a top priority in their life.

Doctors, lawyers, and engineers don't memorize facts to be repeated on the job. They learn how to approach situations that they've likely never seen before. The learn the tools to deal with individual problems, and must have the intelligence to combine these tools in the right way to solve real-world problems in the work force.

If you truly believe that a college education is worthless, then I truly feel bad for you.

education not always means it is useful, however the sole process of education demands certain mental toughness -and students who graduate apparently are better at concentrating, memorizing, applying, working in groups.

Also that is a pretty blind accusation. OF COURSE education prepares people who can work for the society. Society needs proper specialists.
You can go all au natural if you please and live in a forest, but then you won't really be needed for the society.

Think about doctors.
How are they supposed to learn if not by repeating what they're taught?
It's not like they're gonna go out and just 'have a go at it' until they get it right..

And I still think doctors are smarter than the majority of the population.
also no, i'm not a doctor
#195 to #84 - lasmamoe (11/27/2012) [-]
That would be terrible

"Doctor do you know how to do this heart surgery?"

"Bitch please, I saw it on a youtube video.. I got this"
#169 - fuckinniggers (11/27/2012) [-]






Just because someone goes through 5-7 of incredibly hard courses that would scare the **** out of most people who peaked in highschool doesn't mean that they are smarter than the rest of us!
User avatar #212 - anonymoose (11/27/2012) [-]
Except questions in exams are rarely the same as what you're taught. You're taught the techniques and have to mould and adapt those multiple techniques into the question to get the answer.

I'd just like to know where can someone go with no title or diploma go after school, the educational system is indeed severely flawed but its still better getting a nice title than go to McDonald's and resent and hate people who worked HARD to get to their universities.
#218 - Penn (11/27/2012) [-]
Yeah, because screw having doctors with degrees. We can get drop outs to do that easy stuff.
