Excellent piece by Matt and very on point. I remember seeing advertisements in the paper for a receptionist position that required a 4 years degree. Are you kidding me? A 4 year degree was required to answer phones, do some data entry, take messages, sort mail etc. That was absurd but even when I was in high school, I knew then they were pushing college on people who should have gone into trade school and now look at this country. A serious lack of trade schools and tradesman and a glut of worthless college degrees. I love school and encourage education for all but even I can see when college is an insane choice for some.
