I should read that book. These are the things I idly wonder about. I knew those three facts, and that's what I'm talking about. Something's got to give, right?? Or will we all just end up really educated and really broke? I like that you mentioned the parents not understanding the magnitude of fuckedness. I constantly feel disconnected from a generation doesn't understand or even believe in the validity of the bleak prospects that millennials face.
the future of higher ed is bright but there's a bloodbath coming before we get there.
This is something I keep hearing, and it scares the hell out of me. I'm glad the future is bright, but I'm wondering what will happen to the students, parents, teachers, and whoever else gets caught in the crossfire. I've no doubt that large groups of people are going to get really screwed. I'm also in the last two years of my 5-year program. When I finish, I'll actually be going into education. I guess I should keep tabs more closely on all this, huh?
I love the article you shared. I feel as though if you replaced the nicknames for the populations of the respective generations in the article, if could be taken word-for-word as a gripe about millenials. I'm not really upset, but that's probably because my parents are more than understanding of the situation, and, regardless, I'm personally in an excellent spot and don't have a lot to be worried about. I'm very lucky and grateful for these things. I know many of my peers are much more frustrated.
