  •  Fuck for-profit education, seriously (4+ / 0-)

    And fuck how badly it has also infiltrated not-for-profit public education with its ideals. The call toward increasing efficiency and increasing online-classes, increasing class sizes, it's all stemming from the same source: a very diseased version of for-profit education.

    I completely and categorically oppose this model.

    It has found quite a toe-hold in public universities, however, where the bigger departments are usually the more corporate-friendly ones like Business.

    These hurt students seeking an education, and they hurt workers seeking jobs because they devalue both education AND skills.
