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.

That starts in K-12.

Most of what they are trying to do is create "ideal" workers for industries that want someone with half a decades experience without paying for any of it or taking a chance at hiring someone. Thats maybe 30% of the education industries basic goal, the other 70% is to do as you said, get paid to make people who no one wants to hire.

This is what I don't get. Employers all want 5-10 years experience in their specific field plus the education you have. If every employer wants 5-10 experience the only way to make it is going through the internship process. Showing a company that you will get down on your knees and suck extra hard for the opportunity to get placement into their workforce.

Lots of these people with "experience" got it at their father in laws company where they were a glorified e-mail pusher. Or just completely lie about it, to get into the position. This is the only thing that could describe the overall incompetence in today's workforce.
