I suppose this could be true in Britain as well.

    What he says is true, although I think he could have been a bit more focused in his discussion of career training schools.One of the few things that Obama did that actually was of benefit to most people was to undermine parasite technical schools causing their near-extinction. I don’t mean good schools that provide high-quality education and training, but the dodgier elements that are brilliant at taking money for an “education” that isn’t accepted anywhere or by anyone due to low standards. Those that remain are generally reputable and accredited. A number of schools offer certificate/AA/AS training programmes for well under $15,000. Graduates can reasonably expect to start earning at least $30,000 in their first year. By the time they’re in their mid-twenties, if they start at 18 or 19 they could easily earn closer to $40,000 and within a decade well over $50,000. If they’re willing to make certain sacrifices when they’re younger and more capable such as living with their parents (I know, I know) or living in shared accommodation, cooking their own meals, eschew heavy drinking, etc. they can easily pay off their debts within a couple years and start saving money.

    John Grisham’s book “The Rooster Bar” deals with this problem/scam very entertainingly.

    It’s a conspiracy against the uneducated majority, innit? 🙂

    Universities and Academia in general are no different to any other organisation. In the end they always look after themsrlves rather than the interests they purport to represent, in this case learning and reason.
    Nothing to be done about this. It’s part of the human heard instinct thing innit…as Janus might say.
