    Certified 'stupid' degrees? Their parents failed to teach them that one should not overload their ass with debt while starting out what or where they may possibly wanna be in life.

    Colleges are like any other business.

    They have cash-out requirements and cash-in resources.

    Student loans are NOT funded by colleges.

    FAR too much.

    Payments deducts all interest and any payments the student makes, indexed for inflation.

    Some colleges, yes, others, no.

    Sometimes yes. Sometimes, no.

    • Professors' job:
      • research and publish findings
      • share subject matter expertise with students
      • perform administrative tasks
    • Students' "job":
      • master the information shared by professors
    Professors do not work for students, they work for the institutions that employ them.

    They are working a job, and that job is to provide a service -- imparting to others the knowledge they've gained. I don't know what makes you think educating, transferring/sharing knowledge, and researching is a not a service. I don't even care what makes you think it. The notion is thoroughly absurd. Don't reply to me any more.

    Trillions going to Universities from federal grants. I put one list up here last night and now its gone. From the colleges they distribute the money they get from the taxpayer coffers into their professors and others pockets along with building their little . I tracked a portion of that and it is not for just teaching students. I'm with Trump drain the swamp as it is killing the country and its people. It was a slow death that Obama and Clinton's turned into a more rapid decline. Everyday people that their forefathers built this country have been stripped bare for they could have their little fifedoms and tell everyone else that they are too stupid to determine policy of any kind, even when it comes to making decisions for themselves.
