    Not High school, just the narrative that your kids will fail in life, or be unemployable without a College degree.

    Thats such absolute BS, but the University's love it.

    The cost to attend one has risen exponentially over the last 20 years.

    Seems like a scam to me between the University's and the US Government.

    The US Government agrees to push this narrative that college is compulsory and then will fork over the money via student loans and grants to the University's.

    Millions of kids are graduating and starting off life with a mountain of debt and sometimes a useless degree.

    "Universities" is the plural of university -- "Universities function to educate us on proper usage of the English language."

    "University's" is possessive -- "It's the University's function to educate us on proper usage of the English language."

    I learned this before I attended a university.

    Well of course the Universities love it. It's packing their treasuries with money, much of which comes from the government in the form of student loans. While a student may default on their student loans, they'd be defaulting to the government, which guarantees the universities that income, rather than taking on the risk of students possibly defaulting.

    The faulty meme that you are unemployable without a degree is exactly that. Do you really need a degree to be a carpenter or a plumber? Those are both well paying skilled trade jobs without the need for college degree, an apprenticeship, sure, but not a college degree, and they are very suitable for people of the disposition that work well with their hands rather than other types of work.

    Just because the left don't acknowledge such jobs actually exist, insisting that everyone needs a college degree regardless if they have the aptitude for it or not, doesn't mean that these jobs don't exist.

    Yep, its a narrative thats led to allot of Student debt, increased College tuitions and unfortunately for allot of people with useless and unmarketable degrees.

    Kids are graduating with serious debt and no better off as far as job prospects go than they were when they started.

    Plus, this " great economic recovery " has really driven up student debt as more kids turn into professional students knowing that there's nothing available for them when they leave school.

    I thinks Liberal arts degrees should be seriously discounted to account for the lack of income your'e going to receive once you finally graduate with one.

    Imagine the parents who fork up the money to send their kids off to Occidental for example only to see those kids move back in 6 years later.

    Its impossible to get into Occidental and their tutition is through the roof. How in the hell do they accomplish that handing out degrees that aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

    Just pointing out that you're badmouthing the value of higher education while displaying lacking in some of the finer points of grammar.

    Also:

    verb: allot; 3rd person present: allots; past tense: allotted; past participle: allotted; gerund or present participle: allotting

    give or apportion (something) to someone as a share or task.
    "equal time was allotted to each"


    A lot
    Adv. 1. a lot - to a very great degree or extent; "I feel a lot better"; "we enjoyed ourselves very much"; "she was very much interested"; "this would help a great deal"
    a good deal, a great deal, lots, very much, much
