Offended Woman Says Mike Rowe's 'Hard Work' Belittles Higher Ed

Offended Woman Says Mike Rowe's 'Hard Work' Ethic Belittles Higher Education. Here's His Biting Response.

"Point is, Dawn, the hypocrisy in our educational system is rank, the bias undeniable, the disrespect for our flag ubiquitous, and the entire 'safe space' mentality the exact opposite of what life is like in the real world. Higher education has created its own PR nightmare," he wrote. "Is it any wonder parents are trying to figure out if their kids should be sent into such a lopsided environment? Is it any wonder reasonable people are beginning to question the value of a four-year degree?"
He continued, "Tuition has increased at two and half times the rate of inflation. Nothing else this important has ever done that. Not real estate, energy, food, even healthcare. The question is why? Is the quality of education two and half times better than it was thirty years ago? No way. Are universities turning out more graduates? Hardly. Fifty percent of those who enroll don't even graduate. Do people have more disposable income today than they used to? Of course not.
"No, universities have been able to raise their prices partly because too many parents believe that anything less than a four-year degree will doom their kid to a less productive existence, and partly because we’ve pressured millions of kids to borrow whatever it takes from a bottomless pool of unlimited money that doesn't really exist. The result? One and a half trillion dollars of student debt, 6.3 million jobs that no one wants to do, and millions of college graduates who can't find work in their chosen fields — but lack the skill to do the kind of jobs currently available. The kind of jobs you deem, 'hard work.'"
