    Colleges aren't dead by a long shot. Business is booming, the freshmen classes keep getting bigger and tuition keeps going higher. I agree with you that colleges have lost their way and getting into a lot of PC nonsense that is not serving anyone especially the students.

    Costs are ridiculous and yes administration, new athletic facilities, dorms and apartments keep the costs rising. As long as people keep pushing Johnny and Jane into college even if they don't belong there, I don't see how the madness stops. It's simple supply and demand, keep jacking your prices until the customers stop buying.

    The simplicity of the job didn't require someone to spend money for what they will have to learn from the company they work for even when they do have to have a degree....You contend that the universities are ripping folks off but they still get jobs with those degrees. and kids need to learn how to work for their degrees while doing them to cut down on the cost.......

    Yes, they could do internships/apprenticeships. Trades used to offer that. Now they require you go into debt for some baloney degree.

    It's still a debt. Business could offer internships/apprenticeship.
