The US is not alone in its fixation of college as a panacea for solving the world’s problems. AMOLRAJAN makes the case that the UK has also gone over the cliff on sending kids to college that make little or no progress at their colleges rather than developing real-world work skills or a non-college skill that is in demand.

Great advice from Rob LaZebnik, a writer for “The Simpsons”.
"Dear Graduates: You're pampered, privileged and oversexed—but at least your employment prospects are dim."
“So you relaxed into college life—a well-deserved break after the exhausting race to get here. You've spent four years percolating in a warm stew of beer, gender studies and online pornography—which led to the subject of your senior thesis, "Jacobean Dramatic Tropes in Modern 'Massage Surprise' Videos."” Actually many of you have spent six years or more.
“So I advise you to ignore all the clichés of the typical commencement speech and do what your generation does best: get lucky.”
