Bill Maher is a dick but even an annoying clock is right twice a day. Mike Rowe was on his show and gave the best analysis of the American education “system” I’ve heard in years. Fast forward to 3:40 if you’re in a hurry… or just read this:
“We are lending money that we don’t have to kids who will never be able to pay it back to educate them for jobs that no longer exist.”
When you talk about education in modern America you really need to call it the “Education Industry”, then you follow the money and the why it’s like it is becomes much cleared.
Exactimundo! “Cui bono” has never been more applicable.
