Actually a person will make more money in the skilled trades. How many college grads are flipping burgers, with a huge student loan debt?   


I agree. That's why I think college should be more focused on simply learning the trade your choose, whether it's business or architecture or science or journalism. Don't waste time with courses that have nothing to do with your chosen field.

The point of college is to equip yourself with the skills and knowledge to make money in your chosen career. Eliminate the lame core classes that have nothing to do with your major, and your time in college would be cut in half. That’s less money spent, and more time to make money in your profession.

I agree with you.

The option should 100% be on the table.

If people want to have a broader, more liberal-arts education, then they can pay for it. If people want to laser-focus on their true passion and target, then they should be able to do so at reduced cost and reduced time requirements.

But that's not an option at many schools. Perhaps most schools? Because it's all about the cash, backed provided by the government taxpayer as loans with no collateral and given to kids too young to understand the long term implication.

You are awfully concerned about who gets to live.  Why is it so important to you?

Yep. The current system is a scam.

instead of college some students should go to a trade school or get into an apprentice program.

Math. Biology. History. General Science. American Studies. Geography. Etc., etc.

If I'm a fashion major, why do I need to take any of those?

Well, it all depends on your concentration, fashion merchandising,  fashion design, fashion marketing, fashion history/costum design, fashion design online, ...etc.

True. But I could still cut my college years in half if if I didn’t need to waste my time with irrelevant courses.

Everything is relevant.  There is no shame in learning.

I disagree. For example, if I plan on being a culinary chef, how does taking geometry benefit me?

Because courses like geometry helps to build the thinking skills of logic, deductive reasoning, analytical reasoning and problem-solving.  Things that many conservos here don't have.
