Parents are having a close look for the first time to what their kids are learning and they’re definitely not happy.
For the past couple of years, we’re seeing a lot of frustration with college education by both parents and students. Stuck in a very old cycle of curricula, educational methods and lack of understanding of the new market’s career requirements, college education is becoming very expensive and mostly inefficient. College students are becoming so frustrated that they are committing suicide in hundreds out of frustration. They are paying much money for an education that does not prepare them for the modern work environment, they are drowned in debt and have no decent income to pay for it.
