Eternal Graduate Students
“Kiely Fletcher, associate financial aid director at the University of Illinois at Chicago, said the money "is a small Band-Aid trying to cover a gaping wound.''
I’m with Wayne Albro who wrote a letter to the Wall Street Journal on 1/11/05 stating in part
“If a student who has just graduated from a college of engineering or science does not recognize he has just wasted four or five years picking up a few points in his profession and wants to continue for his masters and doctors, he either is planning to teach the subject or seek a future in which he must overwhelm ignorant authorities with certificates of "higher education."
Progress in technical development is not furthered by Ph.D.s or M.S.s but by intelligent people, who, in spite of (not because of) formal education, are thinkers and doers. Intelligent investors will be looking for companies that have hired and nurtured such men and women.
The secrets of science are revealed for all who seek them. The ubiquity of print and the Internet has rendered the priesthood of science obsolete. All of which portends an exciting future for this country when the real capability of our truly intelligent men and women is honored by the country.”
OOOH That’s Good!
