I feel schools are getting too large. It's just glorified HS. I taught at Miss. State and I just wonder how the hell so many got into college. Have the standards lowered? It's just too easy to get in. Schools are going into teaching the masses for an easy buck. So many Frosh classes are in huge setting (100+) and online: it's embarrassing.
Education bubble. It's no different than the housing bubble with the government pushing it. Separate topic for sure but relevant.
All we are doing is now making hard working educated kids spend more to get a Master's to set themselves apart from those who don't even deserve a Bachelor's degree.
Bachelor's have now become a high school diploma except the government isn't paying for the vast majority.
If google has their way you'll be taking online classes with 500 students for each class. Lots of heavy debate about this subject. You reach the masses at a much cheaper cost but you provide zero hands on experience in a smaller learning environment. Great Forbes article on the subject.
