  •  I think the whole growing "college industry"... (2+ / 0-)

    is a boondoggle and scandal in the making, particularly the for-profit colleges.  But IMO we all share the blame for over-hyping formal education, particularly college and then also pushing kids to enter college immediately after completing high school, before many have a sense of the adult world and what they want to do within it.

    IMO it is another symptom of this standardization and regimentation that had turned education into one big easy market for big business.  Over the past 100 years we have become a nation that consumes education provided by the major business players in the "education-industrial complex".
