College for all its meaningless when they lower the standards to make sure everyone passes.

Heck, I'd say free college for all is meaningless, period. College is supposed to be for people who can actually learn and apply complex information. It is necessarily elitist. Access to higher education must be rationed one way or another lest you waste huge amounts of time and money on people who will gain nothing from it and consequently not give anything back to society.

They don't see themselves as educators anymore, though they are holding that moral high ground with a death grip, so they don't care about wasting resources. They see students as paychecks, take whatever money they can get ( from the kids, their families, the government. ) and then pass them through. They take the money but give no education, just a piece of paper.

Worse of all, standards across the board are lowered to accommodate diversity so our best and brightest are essentially stunted.

yes it is, as a young man when i attended i was completely shocked at the state of it. for everything i was told college would prepare you, Was the line. then you get there and for the most part it was a drunken kindergarden of out of control morons and indoctrination, to my luck in the 1980s indoctrination was not in full swing so you had a massive split between the old professors and the new age professors fighting and you did have some control over finding the professors that taught math and the ones that taught SJW and some math on the side to just satisfy the testing requirements. utter waste of time and money college was in retrospect. your first two years at college were simply a rehash of 4 years of high school, and frats were a homo joke.

It's why outside the US we call "college" glorified high school. It's 4 years of a waste of fucking time.

And when they give a degree to almost anyone. Having a degree used to be a sign of being above average. Now, it's as if when you don't have a college degree, you're below average.

This is precisely why high school diplomas are meaningless.
