I'm sick of this 'mandatory' bullshit system. Don't get me wrong. I think the pursuit of knowledge is vital for civil and cultural growth. It's just that we have the tools at hand to avoid spending thousands of dollars a year for job preparation. Google alone will find you all the necessary lectures, tutorials and devices that will prepare you for a financially successful career. All you have to do is set your mind on the task at hand and find the information. you can achieve the same level of education from any state university by self schooling, yet, there isn't an accredited system for testing those who are self-trained. because i'm not willing to fork over the time and money, I wont have much to show, other than a portfolio, to an employer. It's craaaaap.
