[Weekend Watch List] Cu o facultate nu suntem toți datori

[Weekend Watch List] Cu o facultate nu suntem toți datori

Acum, în România, chestia asta s-a dovedit deja. Chiar nu îți trebuie școală să conduci structuri care influențează bunul mers al țării, și, uneori, ea pare chiar a încurca mai mult. Mai e și diferența dintre educație și titlul ei. Titlurile ne plac mai mult. Dar cât de utile sunt ele? Cam asta e întrebarea care se pune din ce în ce mai des în afara granițelor. Știți desenul acela din New Yorker, care apare o dată la două zile în feed.

Cam așa. Ce facem cu facultatea, după ce o terminăm? Și de ce mergem la facultate, până la urmă? E o chestie de status social desuet în noul context al economiei? Cat de mult s-a îndepărtat educația de școală? Câteva răspunsuri și alte întrebări, după cum urmează.

Higher education is not about getting a job | Fred D'Agostino | TEDxUQ

Hear from political philosopher, Professor Fred D'Agostino as he shares numerous examples of this alternative story.

Why financial aid is broken and a simple solution to fix it | Susan Dynarski | TEDxIndianapolis

 The federal system of student financial aid is broken. Many smart students forgo college in the mistaken belief that they cannot afford it. The financial aid system, intended to increase opportunities for low-income students, is to blame. Information about aid eligibility is hidden behind a thicket of paperwork. Complex financial paperwork is a time-consuming nuisance for college-educated parents. For the low-income, first generation college students that aid intends to help, it’s a serious roadblock on the route to college. What if we eliminated the aid application altogether? Susan Dynarski, New York Times columnist and Professor of Economics, Education and Public Policy at the University of Michigan, suggests an enticingly simple alternative.

Income based tuition will also make the humanities as economically attractive as technical fields of study.

Why your major will never matter | Megan Schwab | TEDxFSU

"What's your major?" Is the first question you are asked when you meet a college student. Once out of college the question is replaced by "what do you do?". Luckily, our economy is shifting from one that rewards a "safe" career choice to one that rewards those who follow their own authentic path.
