How do you get a degree by luck? Getting a degree requires enrolling in classes which takes money classes require assignments require materials which means more money and hard work and effort placed in your assignments and those assignments require a good quality grade to get a degree. How is it by chance or luck?

but if college was free, how are the teachers and staff gonna get paid? i definitely think aspects of college should be more affordable and cater towards all financial types but not free.

Here you have a genuine group of people who are adults. They may be over 18 but what sets them apart is true adults will listen and do not interrupt. Just because someone has a different view or idea, they dont bash it, they simply tell their side of the spectrum. Great ideas from all and really makes you think.

SCREW COLLEGE. I ALMOST dropped out of HIGH SCHOOL mid-way as I was already making $4500 per month net profit from importing and selling watches. I had the WORST GPA of my entire cohort and the WORST GPA ever achieved by a student in my school's 16 years history. My classmates hated me for I was always terrible with project work and I would often outsource my school work to virtual assistants while I worked on my business/investments. With that said, I hit seven figures in CASH net worth (pure cash net profit, not those fancy real estate net worth with high leverage which gets added into your net worth calculation nor seven figures in gross revenue which many business owners/ecom guys like to do). I hit seven figures CASH when I was 21 years old. No college for me. Formal education will make you a living. (which is very debatable with the current economic situation). Self-education will make you a fortune. If you would like to discover how I achieved seven figures CASH by 21. My channel shows how it is done. Plenty of money making videos.

why wasted tax money when private and public sectors are only hiring people with no education don't get me wrong if for example you want to work as a doctor you need a degree however if you are aiming for job’s that are considered low end like teacher, nurs, security guard good luck getting a job her in norway with a certificate from school the reason is general manager would rather save money than to have someone qualify to do the job however there are many reason this is so you can't look this situasjon as black and white however to make it shorts and easy som is pure greed often you see this in private sector or low man power that some company get desperate however in public sectors its more complex that involve budget example it's been stated by many teacher that scholse forced to hiring teacher especially in special ed class that has no qualification stay afloat this gives you a picture that having a degree can give disadvantage when applying for jobs P.S you may have notes that i'm dyslexia the reason for choosing this argument is because the government recently publish a 300 page that took 7 years of make about special ed class i didnt red all as it was too complex but i did ask teacher’s on an trusted facebook group for teacher about some of the allegation since it was shocking to the point even the government now is debating whether on not people who need special educational shall have the right anymore since according to them it makes you stupider the other argument is well known in norway i don't really know how to give better proof than my word as this is what i and many people feels like however i can artikel of people who has degree who doesn't get any job or the link to the 300 page although its in norwegian also i know this sound like a conspiracy or i have mental illness but i'm not i am a firmly believe in vaccination also what did make me so suspicious was i was in a wright and reading course that was hosted by dyslexia association of norway that and even some of my teacher was

Regardless of how one may perceive the concept and/or philosophy of school, it is nothing more than what one makes of it. For, regardless of education's intent, you, as the pupil, must ultimately make decision which furthermore will alter you in such a manner that you willing to be manipulated in such a manner. Thus, I am merely implying that for college to be of any relative, subjective significane to you, you must first perceive it in such a manner. To further conceptualize such a theory, I am more than certain that the majority of all college dropouts began did not have the positive of outlooks on college. Therefore, in accordance with such impaired perception, they ultimately deemed it as insufficient and/or inadequate for them. To conclude all of such thought, this is nothing more than the philosophy of self-efficacy at work here; nothing more.

College is one of the biggest scams ever foisted upon American society. We tell kids they must get a college degree to be successful. Many graduate with a useless degree, at least $100K in debt, and can't find a job, while the plumber, the auto mechanic, the welder, the electrician goes to school one to two years, graduates with little to no debt and is making $80-$100 per hour.

It truly depends on the career path you want. Some careers absolutely need degrees (doctors/lawyers/CPA) which others is better to either go to a trade school or do hands on training (any maintenance field/computer tech/computer programmer). Obviously, there are benefits for both college and hands on but it truly depends on your field. Minor rant, colleges should also get rid of most of the useless electives they require so that people wouldn't have to spend as much and waste as much of their lives in useless classes that have no benefits to their field (I had to take a film class, physics class, and two semesters of PE in order to sit at a desk and play with numbers as an accountant (all three listed are better in high school where they have a set schedule and can be introduced to various studies (and to get them moving more) but not for college as one of my PE classes was archery and it really didn't do much PE for me at all)).

Besides medicine, finance and law you don’t need a degree. A degree just helps you get your foot in the door but talent, passion and a hard work ethic are what make you successful.

I think an interesting question would also be if people had to drop out by choice or not. Some people are forced to drop out even though they want to finish due to circumstances beyond their control such as money or learning disabilities, like dyslexia and dyscalculia. There literally could be so many possible reasons

I can relate to this Middle Ground so much. I was attending a community college for 4 years as soon as I graduated high school at the age of 17. I enrolled while in high school, even took some entry college courses before even being enrolled, and finally started my first semester in Fall. Years later...as I attended I began to ask myself a question that changed my perspective, "Is this what I want to do?" This question, unfortunately, caused me to dropout. I was going to school for Hospitality & Tourism Management and I enjoyed most of my courses, but I didn't enjoy the managerial courses, law courses, and prerequisites. I hated it. I hated it so much that I began to question if this was my major of choice. I had already spent 4 years worth of grant money, resources, and accumulated over 85 credits. A semester away from obtaining a basic AA degree! However, it wasn't truly what I wanted to do and it hurts...because I enjoyed going to school and learning those courses that engaged me, but to me, it wasn't worth attending for another year. I think everyone should go to college and have that opportunity, if it's not for you it just isn't, but no one should be looked down upon or punished for making that choice within themselves.

We should do college like Europe does. You take an aptitude test and it you pass you get in. They don't have as many regards in college.

I don’t think it’s about if college is worth it or not I think it’s more about knowing exactly what you want in life and knowing what it takes and if college is required for what you want then yea it is worth it but if you wanna do something that doesn’t require college then yea it’s not worth it. It’s a topic that is so different with every person that there’s really no answer tbh. Like you can’t really tell someone yes or no because they really have to figure it out on their own.I think the problem that I had was I honestly felt so pressured by all my teachers and my parents telling me go to college and get a good job. Idk just me tho 🙃

why did you drop out? "because it wasn't me and I don't think it was worthwhile" or was it too hard? If you dropped out because it was difficult and you couldn't push through that's weak. In any instance you should keep trying.
DOGA UNLU 11 kun oldin
I don't think that the college education is just about the degree you're getting. The people you meet, especially if your college has a diverse student body, and the things you learn outside of the books -- such as living without your parents, I'm literally thousands of miles away from my home -- can be really meaningful. Still, if you think you can get this type of education without college, then go for it. I just didn't like the idea of equalizing the college education with a bachelor's degree.

I'm about to be completely honest here. I didn't go to college and I know more things and I know how to do more things than every person I know that went to college. Hell I even have more money than most of them. They're in debt I'm not. I've even work with some at my job and they make less and I hath to tech them most things. That go to college and you'll be successful rule they drilled in our head back in the day myth has been busted for years. You can pay all that money and waist all your time in college to figure out that career you are pursuing is actually not for you later on. Then it's to late. You could've just invested that time and money in building your own business. Well than again maybe everyone isn't capable of even beginning to think in such a way. If you was to see me you probably wouldn't believe I'm good at almost everything that life has to offer at first glance though. Message 📨

I'm in middle school. But in elementary school, I knew we were poor, and its gotten worse since then. Since elementary, I have been working towards a scholarship, but I don't know how much it's gonna help. Like you can only do so much, and if I don't get it what am I gonna do. Not everyone should go to college though because if they did there would be no point. The schools wouldn't be able to buy the things they need without really high taxes. Nobody wants higher taxes, and not everyone wants to go to college. Some people do, and there is a balance between labor workers and then jobs like Doctor or Veterinarian. I don't know, but it's just my opinion and what I've observed. Tell me if you disagree with anything and we can discuss it.
romz 13 kun oldin
Some highly specialized careers require going to college such as engineering medicine law, and all STEM fields so I would say going to college for these degrees is definitely worth it since there is a healthy demand for these professionals.But if you are going to college to accrue debt over a ridiculous PhD. in leisure studies for example then good luck to you.Nevertheless college can be a good place to develop yourself as an individual, your political views and also learning to network for opportunities which I think is even more important than getting the degree itself.

I understand why some colleges might need the students to pay, like if their are a small university/college, but I don't understand why the medium or big colleges/universities need student tuition, or at least at the amount they want. Like Harvard for example, they do not need any student tuition because graduates donate millions of dollars to Harvard. Or the Public universities get funded by the government or state. I don't mind college is not free but I wish the tuition was affordable because at all students are scholarship students. Like why should students go into debt, sometimes major debt to get an education.

I don't understand the black dropout guy's logic. Does he not realize construction workers, or anyone in any field in the world can be college educated? There is such a wide range of degrees that could help in any profession or just expand your knowledge in general. This plays into the harmful idea that college is exclusive and out of reach or that only certain career paths can benefit from more knowledge?

Going to college is one thing. Being smart about going to college is another thing. I knew even before I graduated high school that I was going to go to college so I spent the four years in high school preparing for college. This meant ensuring that I was positioning myself to be able to get to college and getting scholarships to go to college. This meant taking a lot of time to think about what I wanted to major in and what the return would be once done. Just going to college and not even having a game plan will result in a job one doesn’t like feeling like it was all a waste of time. College is the best thing I ever did and I am currently reaping all the rewards of my degree.

First you must ask, what is knowledge? I believe college is just another way for the government to stay wealthy. You could learn just as much online. Only difference is the social interactions that could benefit you and you get a degree. A degree, what is that? Just a label, signifies your intelligence? You pay so much just for that piece of paper, you are still not guaranteed the life you strive for. It seems like society believes education can only be achieved through schooling. We need to get with the times, the internet is endless. Vast information. Obviously you need to be able to differentiate between what's real, what's theory, what's opinion, etc... I believe if you know where to research, you can educate yourself just as a college student. As long as you stay consistent with your research.

I doubt there was a conservative in that group, free education and everyone jumps to their chairs. Nothing is free, you have paid for an education to invest in yourself, how can you be so entitled to believe it should be free. Education is overpriced because of Government meddling. You don't need a college degree to start a business, there are plenty of free online courses. Do better.
