Did you know that Apple and Microsoft have dropped the college degree requirement for new hires?

The problem I had is that most college graduates today are just not what they used to be. Colleges have dumbed down currlicums. In part just to get more students, and in an even larger part push diversity, and other PC agendas. They are turning out far too many incompetents.

I was hiring technical people, I found a better gauge of their suitability was rather or not they did hobbyist stuff. I often found that people with top grades did not have the spart it took, an innate grasp of how things work, to be effective engineers. They might have eventually been suitable as a manager, but that was my job.

    Hear Hear!!!!!!!

    Maybe I should tell some tales out of school……

    Must have been 2008 or 2007 because Hillary Clinton flew in to help celebrate it. A half-dozen campus size college had just started free college for all county HS graduates with a C average or higher. Oh they have to do social justice acts and go through that brain washing in return.

    Well that public school system was graded with 78 percent of its schools getting an F grade. (So how many got a D grade? That is failing also.)

    It has been accepting functionally illerate students. One family member visiting with me on an unrelated topic just out of the blue volunteered that their young nephew had to drop out of that college because he was reading at 3rd grade level.
    That is the reason textbook publishers who offer voice over Powerpoint slides literally showing how to do all the homework are so popular with students. Problem is most just out HS students rush through it to get it over with and can’t pass closed-book, proctored exams even if the students scored 100% on the homework.

    That is another issue pushed by admin – they don’t care, and even reward instructors that have zero proctored work even for core introductory courses. That means for online classes that never have to come on campus or even see the teacher once, you have many students paying someone to take the class and get an A for them.

    That last fact was proven by a local paper and tv station.

Fyi

The higher education system is grossly overbuilt and over-extended. It needs to be prune down to al least a third of its current size.

“Will Coronavirus Crisis Trigger an Enrollment Crisis?

U.S. colleges could see a major enrollment pipeline cut off this fall if the coronavirus epidemic persists. Meanwhile, Australian universities are missing more than half their Chinese students weeks before their fall semester begin.

The biggest story in international education over the last decade was, in a word, China.

As the number of students from China studying in the U.S. grew rapidly, fueled by a big increase in tuition-paying undergraduates, colleges and universities grew reliant on them to balance their budgets. And as Chinese universities grew in stature, American colleges created innumerable partnerships with their Chinese counterparts in research and other areas….”
