I do not see how colleges and universities can continue with this rate of inflation. All universities and colleges should have federal monopoly and racketeering charges levied against them!

There needs to be a shift to emphasize trade schools. You can make a good living doing trade work. If society shifted some emphasis on trade schools and colleges were losing enrollment to trade schools, colleges would get a reality check really quick.

If the figures posted about Kettering tuition are accurate, that is disgusting.

I am currently in IT and am obtaining my degree in IT. After taking IT related classes, I see how unprepared this would leave a typical student who didn't have experience in the field. Someone entering the workforce would be grossly unprepared.


But alas, I want that piece of paper.

They are, but you need to add in their other fees, so it typically adds up to a straight Bill from Kettering over 30000

That is before having a place to stay, food, books, supplies, insurance, and other stuff.

It's almost every college. Look at starting wages over that same time span and the real travesty really stands out.

I feel for you guys dealing with the cost of school. I had a tough time myself in the 80's when I was working on my degree and I think you guys have it tougher still. I wish the best for you.

I went to Wayne State and it has treated me extremely well. Since March Ive gained more then 15k in salary. Also next year I'll be college debt free.

Being laid off was the best thing for my career.

Ability > expensive piece of paper.
