    I wrote a research paper on the rise of the anti science and intellectualism movement here in America. It's been growing because of both sides of the political spectrum. The southern evangelical movement and the rise of post modernism on the left seem to be the largest historical contributors.

    Especially when you are being taught by open communist and socialist professors who are turning their students into future Antifa Sanders voters.

    The Department of Education should be abolished

    Makes sense. They need to preserve their base of uneducated poor white people who are ignorant enough to keep electing Republicans who serve against their interests.

    I found college to quite useful. I had to fill some credit hours a few semesters to receive my full BAH from the VA, so I took a couple extra history classes and learned quite a bit.

    We will see what happens when buildings and bridges need to be repaired...

    There is a reason certain trades died off, dont mean those reasons are bad, technology just evolved. But nah... We need to go back to the days of hand made wallets.

    I'm assuming they are referring more to the environment, then what is actually being learned

    youre right. very right.

    however, shunning college and only embracing "experience" and "common sense" is just as foolish as the know-it-all enlightened liberal arts majors.

    This is possible. It's hard to dispute that gaining knowledge is a futile endeavor. So, I'm going to assume that they may not be happy with the environment in which it's taught.

    maybe not you, but plenty of people do.

    just search for the "college is a waste of time" threads.

    Post modernists seem to believe that science is only 'one way of knowing' and just as valid as 'other ways of knowing'. For one reason or another they gained traction on American campuses in the 60s and have become more and more prominent and accepted with each passing decade until finally the popularity of post modernism reached critical mass and gave us social justice warriors who are vehemently anti-science.

    I had a great college experience and learned a lot there, but neomarxists have ruined a lot of universities and do more harm than good

    Everyone here is quick to dogpile (durr dumb redneck republicans) but Jordan Peterson who has been a professor at Harvard and university of Toronto said the same thing, that universities do more harm than good at this point

    I wouldn't go far enough to say a blanket statement like "college is bad" but there are real concerns about the university system at this point
