According to a Rasmussen telephone survey this week, only 29 percent of respondents believe that most recent college graduates have the skill to successfully enter the work place. We’re entitled to wonder that it’s this high, considering the endless news of the sheer dopiness taking place on campus.
Can it possibly be long before a majority of Americans tumble to the obvious fact that for a very large fraction of young people, their four years spent idling in college are a waste of time and money? (Universities are certainly not safe places for those paying the freight.) More than a waste in so many cases when you figure in the time and effort it takes to de-louse their thinking after they’ve graduated. So many have navigated curricula so dumbed down that I’m convinced that our late and much beloved German short-haired pointer, Easy, could have graduated at least cum laude in most liberal-arts majors. That is, if she could have stayed awake during the classes.
