    One last thing as I finish watching this video, students are indoctrinated into thinking that the only way to make a high income is to go to college and get that worthless degree. I think you are a part of this corruption and it needs to end. If you were to tell me that I’m going to college to make 10$ an hour then would I go? No I wouldn’t go and nobody would go. So obviously the majority of students go to college for financial security. This is totally corrupt and it shouldn’t be how education is ran.
    It’s all about money and nobody wants to admit it, what a shame. Now you don’t want to talk about this because you know that’s it’s the hard truth and you’re a biased faculty member.
