Here is a video I saw on youtube that I thought might be interesting. It is a bit one sided but I’ll admit that I do share SOME, not all, of the views in this video. It’s over an hour long and is more like a documentary talking about how formal education is a kind of brainwashing that is more expensive than it’s really worth. I think it makes some interesting points and it shows just how insanely expensive education in the US is getting for most people. I do realize that university can be important and necessary for many jobs, but it can also be a money making business based upon empty promises. Let me know what you think if you have time to watch it. Start it anyway and you’ll get the idea.
