    As we progress into ever greater glory of social conditioning, we will be able to have both and no longer need to choose! Already, we have removed the stigma of learning from the necessity of attending institutes of public instruction. Raises all around for a job well done!

    Maybe if professor would work 40 hours a week then school would be cheaper. also if we would buy more made in the USA products we would have enough jobs.

    Davies’ either way….doom….educate or not educate….is caused by the US government policies of favoring teacher unions by subsidizing tuition for keeping classrooms full of students……50 years of NEA dumbing down of K-12 schooling….and anti-Biz taxing policies….states like Illinois has driven businesses into other states by high taxes…the Feds have driven Big Biz out of the USA by the highest corporate tax in the world….the Keynesians appointed by R and D presidents have prevented true economic growth by regulations and taxes for so long that since 2007 the US cannot recover from “recession” and could be heading into a 2nd Depression…..because voters keep electing the Liberal MSM approved candidates……skilled at false rhetoric and leftist governing methods….what a sad ending for a Republic so carefully crafted to operate with a Moral framework and the most possible freedoms for the People….Happy Presidents Day….apologies to our better ones such as Lincoln and Washington….too bad the MSM doesn’t feature Quotes from speeches from both, upholding our Founding truths.

    As a person with two children in college, one applying to law school, this is a very disturbing toon.
    I have been reading, for the past 4 years, the long list of articles in the NYT pointing out the crumbling of the law school paradigm. And yet this is the career path I think is particularly suited to my daughter’s gifts of personality and intellect (before you go there, no, I don’t see law as only ambulance chasing, criminal defense or corporate shenagining) she’s logical, disciplined, creative and, of course, smart like a whip.
    The younger one is essentially studying for a trade, Physical therapist (should have her masters in a 5 year program).
    I worry about the job market for my Lawyer girl. Fortunately, the applications for enrollment in law school is way down! That generally means that there will be a tight supply for a static demand and the law of Supply and demand indicates a bright future three years from now.
    You don’t go to college for the market they have today, you suss out where demand will be in the future and you aim your education towards that.
    I hope that this is something that most people never figured out (see for example the number of students in college to become certified to be an elementary school teacher. Even when they are told that there 10 times the people needed for these jobs with certificates (a number I just made up, but not outside the scope of probability) today, still they go after that certificate).
    Some colleges have priced themselves out of the market, but in NYS the SUNY system translates to about $13,000 per year to live on campus (plus books) And private schools (if you have the grades) pretty much drop their costs to be around the same after all grants and scholarships. Unless they are a big name (lets leave the Harvard/Yale free rides out of the equation, most people going there pay heavy for the experience) school (or you don’t have the grades in highschool and are buying a degree) in which case you’re paying $30,000 to $60,000 per year. Those high priced schools are felling the pinch plenty!
    One last note. It’s not where you go, it’s where you graduate from that matters. So get your first years at a low cost institution and look to marticulate your senior year(s) so you can have a named sheepskin on your wall.
