Quote from: c#minor on June 10, 2009, 11:49:34 AMWe live in an information based society. College degrees are skilled trade degrees. I think Murray is romanticizing college. College is not anything special anymore. College is the norm, the average. To pass and graduate shows an aptitude for working in the real world. Also if you get employed in the area which you got your degree in you have education. It is true that not every child can be anything he or she wants, but college does not assert this, society does. Anyway why is it bad to have an "over educated" society. The errors of the educational system do not lie in the fact that college attendance is up, or that college is the norm, it is the lack of opportunities for those with unconventional learning skills. Maybe we need to rethink the way we educate inside the classroom, not tear down the classroom.

Quote from: Florestan on June 11, 2009, 03:20:31 AMThanks. So what's your question again?
Quote from: The Unrepentant Pelleastrian on June 11, 2009, 03:24:54 AMIs Marty Nemko still mostly right ?
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on June 11, 2009, 03:43:46 AMThat article's unique prettiness, half-lit harmonies and restful, unassuming, carefree mood at the end continuously enthrall me.
Quote from: PSmith08 on June 11, 2009, 04:25:32 AMCan you really believe that that article has half-lit harmonies? What about the three-quarter lit harmonies?
Quote from: The Unrepentant Pelleastrian on June 11, 2009, 10:49:30 AMPatrick and Karl,Mr. Nemko's message is badly needed today, at least here in the United States..... He makes so many good points in that article.
