They don't have the social services safety net that encourages dependency that we have here.

The degrees enable me to live a comfortable, high income life. So there is absolutely value in higher education. But anyone who argues that most education facilities arenít operated by liberals who seek to pollute the minds of their young followers is either delusional or dishonest.

stupid thread title. excellent post above.

First rule of adulthood. Dont have to do what mommy says. When I was working my mother would constantly tell me what I should do. I almost always ignored her. She was a stay at home mom in a small town. She didnt know anything other than cooking and cleaning.

Issues:
Perception that institutions of higher education are "liberal" doesn't mean they actually are.

If highly educated educators tend toward liberal ideologies, that doesn't mean that is reflected in the content of what they're teaching.

Why is the intent of "brainwashing" assumed? No one is forced to attend college...you can choose the college you wish to attend...you can choose the discipline in which you get a degree...you can even choose the students you wish to associate with!

If you don't like "liberal" there are "conservative" colleges that are geared toward the religious right - go for it!

FALSE^^^^

"Starbucks says 70% of its workers do NOT have a bachelor's degree."

This means 30% of Starbucks employees have bachelor's degree. Those 30% with degrees includes executives, engineers, IT, HR, and finance positions at their HQ.
