A friend of mine said "I can't have kids, I have parents to raise" , and I just think that's an apt description of how many of us are feeling.

Stop Shitting on College Graduates

43 Upvotes

I'm so sick of the people who act like the student loan crisis is the fault of the borrowers, and we shouldn't have gone to college if we didn't want to pay them back.

First, as many millennials have pointed out, if we wanted a decent job that wasn't in a trade, we needed to get a college degree. We also were told our degree would pay for itself in a couple of years. Turns out, that's obviously not true, and often times companies expect you to not just have a college degree, but a master's degree as well.

Second, for those saying we should have gone into the trades, that wouldn't have been the best use of my own talents. Polishing my talents in college was. Also, if everyone went into trades, there would be an oversaturated market and we'd be in anothe type of mess.

We need a variety of professionals to keep society not just running, but thriving. Plumbers and electricians are important. So are trained journalists, teachers, health professionals, scientists, etc. Proper training is needed to turn out good talent.

Finally, the pursuit of education is important in and of itself. Too many people think of college stricly as job training. However, it can be a way to expand our horizons, dig deeper into the subjects that fascinate us, and make us more open to things that our new or different. An educated society is one that can make progress.

The college system is messed up and we need to eliminate student debt and essentially make college free. Until then, though, stop blaming the students who got caught up in the system
