This trend of educating people for certain tasks is just a way to create teaching jobs in small technical industries.  They look appealing, but there is only a finite number of jobs.  Mostly for teachers.  This technique of 'creating jobs' was done a few years back with the pharmacist industry.  Created much income for the new school programs to teach, but, again, where are the jobs for more pharmacists? Another industry trend creating 'jobs' are the 'computer programmers'.  Learn Code!  Looks like that could end up in more low paying 'data entry' type jobs.


Only if there are any jobs to be had.

The "biographical assessment" mentioned in the article is just the testing within the psychological weeding process.

How to get rid of your student loans

Students hoping to become public defenders, work in the health field, or hopeful veterinarians in the state of Kentucky specializing in large food animals -- you're in luck.

You might be eligible for a number of programs that will help to repay your student loan debt. (Problem is, these programs aren't easy to find out about.)

"The information can be really buried within a website or can be fractured," said Betsy Mayotte, director of regulatory compliance at the nonprofit organization American Student Assistance. "You kind of have to dig for the details."

College Conspiracy is the most comprehensive documentary ever produced about higher education in the U.S. The film .





Student Loans Might Be Driving Up the Cost of College. So What Do We Do About It?

In 1987, President Reagan's secretary of education, Bill Bennett, published a now classic New York Times op-ed titled “Our Greedy Colleges” in which he argued that the government's attempts to make higher education more accessible may have also accidentally made it more expensive. “If anything,” he wrote, “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities blithely to raise their tuitions, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.” Ever since then, academics have sparred over whether the so-called Bennett hypothesis is really true. Do colleges actually take advantage of all those federal grants and loans by hiking their prices? And if so, are some schools even more callous about it than others?

Looks like education will go the way of private sector drone programming!  Qualifications become redundant over time and must be continually upgraded.  A monthly fee will be required to update your programming from now on....

Ironic the report is from Phoenix...university.  Did you know that if you receive a degree from 'online' universities you are not eligible to teach in them?


Then what's the point of getting an online education if the certificate is crap?
