We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Much of higher ed consists of trade schools of sorts - as in business or accounting majors, computer science majors, nursing, performing arts, engineering, etc. Another big part of higher ed is civilizational transfer with little practical work application.
I like trade schools and I like apprenticeships. Many entry level jobs are in fact apprenticeships even if not labeled as such.
invoked something called the “Gainful Employment Rule,” decreed in 2014, invented out of thin air, designed to punish schools offering courses in “occupations for which there are simply no job opportunities,” leading to “crushing student loan debt.”
Well I suppose that ANY school offering a degree in British or French literature will be closed immediately. I wonder if ITT was shaken down by the Klintons and refused Hillary's tender embraces. That would be cause for The Government to close ITT for not paying the protection money demanded.

Yeah, higher ed doesn't do that anymore. Best to just study hard in your vo-tech major, develop a reading habit and a curious mind. Then once you are earning a decent living, you can occupy your downtime with civilizational transfer. Even better if, while young and single, you take a vocational job in a hardship location where the money is good, but the nightlife is make your own.
And really, for your civilizational transfer, does it make sense, with so much available online, to limit yourself to a handful of professors who self-select on their common school of thought?
