What College Is
This short video is worth watching and passing onto others, especially students.
He’s speaking to students and his message is timeless. It’s a simple, but important message about the opportunity to do something great, to find careers they love that make them economically viable, that requires hard work, and a never quit attitude.
This current generation never heard these words, or if they had, we wouldn’t have so many unemployed college students. He states the truth about finding what you love, but doing so in a way that makes you economically viable. In only a few minutes, he talks about never quiting, he talks about smart, great people who did quit. The one’s who should have seen dreams come true, but had quit. President Trump is real, he’s not the orator one might want, but his message is heart felt and real.
I was glad I found this today.
What College Is Not
I like Trump’s talk because it is 180 degrees opposite the messages this latest generation has received from their advisors. They listened to teachers, pop-culture, and others who said, follow your dreams. Trump says, find a career your passionate about, and is economically viable, and don’t quit!
The alternative message students have been getting in the last generation results in this pathetic commentary and excuse making. It’s not my fault. That sounds like, I quit. This article quote, and the article, in Forbes sounds like a student who is lost. The author in explaining his position provides excuses for students. He argues on behalf of the students who made bad choices by saying, “Again, they did nothing wrong.”
No, I suppose they did nothing wrong, like sheep, they didn’t think at all about what going to college meant, going to college is part of getting a job, period.
Excuse Making Never Leads To Improvement
The first rule of LEAN manufacturing is to get to the truth in order to make improvements to get better. Excuse making in this article means the next generation of students will be as dumb (intensity intended) as this generation.
“The education system encouraged them to do so and their parents likely followed along. Upon graduating they realized that this economic promise didn’t come to fruition so easily. Again, they did nothing wrong. The problem is in theframework and in the way our economic model incentivizes people.” Forbes, requotes Quora, January 8th, 2018 https://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2018/01/08/why-are-so-many-college-graduates-unemployed/#40239e837fef
The person who wrote this, and Forbes who promoted it, are promoting more stupid students, this is crazy. Forbes should be promoting the Presidents talk, but they won’t. This article perpetuates stupid. It gives students more excuses, they will have learned nothing from this current in debt generation. LEAN would say, they will repeat the same poor college choices.
Education System Is To Blame
A simple root-cause-analysis points to the truth that the entire college message is owned by Universities who desire that all people become its subjects.
Someone needs to tell the truth about college education and the institutions promoting college education. Education is a system and it encourages its own survival over the survival, and life, of the students.
Colleges own and control both the message about college, and living life in general (atheism is promoted by colleges, that’s by design).
For parents and students, maybe a class-action lawsuit asking that colleges waive all debt if their graduates are unemployable. Just a thought. After all, colleges are the smart people, they’re the ones who teach economics, they knew that degrees they were charging hundreds of thousands of dollars for were useless. That little fact didn’t stop them from charging and promoting their degrees.
Compare Trump’s Message To the Forbes Article
Look at the Forbes article, compare that message to the Trump video and his message. Tell me which one promotes the best quality of life for students? Which one is honest with students, which one will help students be happy in a lifetime? The message of hard work, don’t quit, pick a degree field that makes you economically viable should be taught in every grade from middle school on up.
Thank you, President Trump, for speaking the truth, hopefully, teachers, universities, students and parents will pick up on the message.
Don’t forget, not everyone should go to college, now that’s a shocker! Yes, other countries understand that vocations are just as valuable, as degreed people. America needs more promotion of vocational training for skilled workers.
Be the first to sign up below, I’m sure there’s an attorney who would take your case, I keep hearing about hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt for students and parents, maybe this way you can get money back, and save the next generation from the same pitfall, how else will we learn? Forbes won’t tell students about old fashion values, neither will teachers or Universities.
