High education skus but not for the Tucker Carlson-esque reasons any of you are saying.

It's because of how capitalism and profit have become the driving forces for schools. Students paying ridiculous prices for everything from tuition to textbooks because of our country's boner for monetizing everything.

The availability of infinite student loans has made the problem worse. Yet, unless you're a rich legacy student or athlete, or you're one of the lucky poor kids who gets in on an academic scholarship, student loans are necessary for going to college.

Peperdine appreciates your participation in raising the cost of education by taking out students loans for a degree that doesn't support the dollar investment.

I think the only college class I ever took was an intro to Photoshop class at Golden West college in like 2005.

I have a 6 figure income now, was able to get some basic certifications in my field to get my foot in the door, then decided to work harder at it than everyone else around me. IT work is great.

 

And shit @Taylor, you say they capitalists have a boner for monetising everything from textbooks, education and so on. That stuff is all the result of someone or multiple someones labor. Textbooks don't appear out of thin air, and professors aren't robots. Well, they're robots in one fashion I guess these days...

 

Someone has to pay for that shit, i would say leftists such as yourself have a boner for feeling entitled to that labor. Unless you're getting a scholarship, that's only granted to you either through slavery or your neighbors paying for it. Higher education is just that. Higher. It's not necessary.

 

now someone go dig up some shit from me where I argued the complete opposite of this like a dip shit.

I forget then which poster here paid their way through college. Maybe failos?

You obviously didn't go to college if you think textbooks aren't price gouged to oblivion. A single textbook really costs $250 worth of labor? Hahaha.

I remember my freshman or sophomore year, I let the Pepperdine bookstore lady talk me into buying my Spanish textbook new ($200) rather than used ($80) because she said I'd be able to trade in the new textbook at the end of the semester.

End of the semester rolls around, I go to trade in the textbook. "Oh sorry, there's a new edition, so we're not buying that one back."

I don't think textbooks should be free. But I don't think it should cost hundreds of dollars a semester for textbooks.

I don't think college should be free, necessarily. But I don't think it should force someone to take out a mortgage-sized loan.

Blarg just likes to make personal attacks then delete responses back to him. But he's "not a mod."

Well, I just realized that Blarg didn't go to college, yet he makes more money than I will probably ever make in my life.

The textbooks cost what the market deems them to cost. That market is being propped up by unnatural forces.

 

Since I never went through the process and don't know, don't the student loans cover textbooks? If so, are you only able to buy new textbooks with those loans?

Student loans go just to tuition, so textbooks are extra. Although I believe student loans can cover housing and other fees.

Nowadays, it's easier to find used textbooks online for cheaper prices, but books are still expensive.

Here is a lot of money given to the poor. A middle class working family isn’t getting anything but a small gov loan. They then seek private loans. Their basically paying their way and Jamals way twice. Once through taxes and again by paying school grants for the poor. Play around with the fasfa website sometime. A pregnant female or male father gets a shot ton of free money for being irresponsible in ha. Average kid better go to community college or they are going into debt for college.

There are plenty of colleges that don’t charge tens and tens of thousands of dollars each year to attend. Racking up $200,000 + in loans and debts isn’t necessary for a degree or a good paying job.

Fasfa is a joke if you have a job

They will lend you money based on you having a job

If you are a dead beat parent with tons of debt you get financial assistance

So middle class parents pay through the nose

Kids have to work to get scholarships, grants, have a job while in college and parents pay the rest

Or get a student loan

That has nothing to do with your decisions to live outside of your means, being part of the problem of a prohibitively high cost for college education and being in financial chains afterwards since your degree focus doesn't support your desired lifestyle.

Very true. I saved my gi bill for my son but we still had to do fasfa. It’s a good thing he had it because he wasn’t getting anything for free

I worked with a guy that had a masters in cinema from Harvard. That qualified him to be a runner, then worked dubbing and finally assistant tape operator before moving on from The Post Group. He ended up getting into pyrotechnics for stage. His degree could have been used to light a sparkler for all it was worth but at least he made enough money to pay off his student loans.

I used my degree for a few years then fell back into the trade I started in.  College is a scam these days with these student loans.  In my day I went to a university, not a Harvard but while working it was around $2500 a semester after buying books. In high school not to age myself they taught get a trade.  Now they want to prep them for college and a mountain of debt.  My brother got nominated for an Emmy (didn't win but went to the party) for sound work on the Sopranos back when it was on and never graduated high school.  College should not cost what it does unless you want to go to Harvard, etc.

A bunch of dudes who went to the "school of hard knocks" ragging on people who went to college.

I honestly don't care if you went to college or not. I know plenty of people who have had successful, fulfilling careers without a degree. I know many others who have successful, fulfilling careers because of their degree.

If you're older than 50, though, you really have no idea what the job market is like these days for younger people.
