"educators are the primary reason we have such a massive wacko-loon population "

Can't argue with that.

Look at what the millennials study in college....that they have half of those type of courses to major in....is a joke.

And the politicians know that.....and adjust their rhetoric to keep getting votes.

more and more high school grads are opting to go to college and choose thier major by the difficulty of the classes involved, many tend to avoid majors that have requirements in math (calculus, chemistry, physics)... this is why we have less and less engineers and doctors and more and more "business" majors and other "soft" majors which focus more on feelings, talking, and listening and abstract thought.

I graduated from college in the mid 90s, then again recently with both a Computer science degree which I then quickly got a Masters in ( I used my GI bill for the 4yr degree and Hazlewood act for the Masters).

And one thing was for clear to me, when I had classes that mixed hard science majors with softer ones, like business, social work etc.... those students were very liberal and very close minded to outside views. They believed too much on ideas rather than the actual quality of work, many often made excuses for their lack of participation in group projects.

the worst was that many graduated despite their inability to be worthy of actually acquiring a job that involved real work and real responsibility... too many were given a pass on a degree that they didnt really earn.

Good job....I couldn't do college again....

While we need scientists and engineers to "do their thing", we also need tradesmen to do their thing....which is to keep what the engineers come up with....in good working order.

It's a team effort....

But making the taxpayer's fund silly subjects is absurd.

Going to college shouldn't be treated as going to a party or some nonsense. Pay for that attitude themselves.

funny you say that... I tried it before as a Technician before giving up and going into the military to provide for my family. Regulation is killing off the tradesmen. the only way to make a living in any trade, pluming, electrician, construction is to work for a company, which deal with the paperwork, but the trade off is lower pay and little say so on everything else. Of course, If you can manage all the red tape yourself, you are nearly always cut out of project bids due to lack of connections, clout, or shear manpower (they dont like small teams or sole props)... may tradesmen in my area struggle to make ends meet, I see them every day, its a dog eat dog world, and Im happy to have gone the route I did (military to get $$ for higher education). the trades are a mess and competition is brutal with razor thin profit margins.

Yes there are a few that make it big, but they are simply the exception to the rule, for every winner in the trades, there are mountains of losers that gave their best yet failed or are still trying.

My heart goes out to them, but I sure as hell wouldnt trade my current job to be one given the pay, work hours and benefits (or lack there of)

Too many of our youth simply dont want to do the work. they think you can sit on you butt and become a millionaire. I had to shoot my own kid down when he said he wanted to "design video games".... I explained to him just cause you like to play them all damn f-ing day, does not make you a software developer. Sure enough he took some classes in HS that lean towards that... and he hated it.

Somewhere, we simply lost control of the educational system. And I think it has to do with parent involvement, and how we allow teachers to operate. Parents coddled their kids by demanding recognition for little to no effort or simply average performance, felt that their kids should not feel un-accomplished, and simply embraced the idea of participation trophies and safe places.

Now we are simply reaping the results of that desire to protect or kids from the truth.... that simply being is not a reason to be recognized and rewarded.

You're a young whipper snapper. When I got my engineering degree, we didn't have any fancy hand held calculators to whip out answers.

We had to rub two sticks of bamboo together to get answers.

And furthermore we had to walk to class uphill both ways.
