While the propaganda machine continues to tell students within the ruling class’s education system in the United States that the only way to be successful is to get a college degree, many are finding the lie too much to believe anymore. Students are finally starting to question the “return on investment” when it comes to four years in the indoctrination camps known as college education.
CNBC has reported that the trend is continuing downward when it comes to people willing to sign up to be brainwashed into the slave system, citing data from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. The trend, which the mainstream media claims began during the COVID-19 plandemic, when many opted to get a job or complete a certificate program instead of seeking a four-year degree, does not appear to be reversing, the broadcaster reported in an article on Friday.
Making sure that the indoctrination into a slave system continues long past childhood is one of the cornerstones of effective control over the slaves. This is going to open some eyes for sure, which is a great step in the right direction.
“This is more bad news for four-year colleges,” Doug Shapiro, the executive director of the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, told CNBC, according to Big News Network. “Not only have fewer of the 2017 starters completed as of 2023, but the data also show fewer still enrolled, suggesting that this is more than just a matter of slower progress during the pandemic years,” he explained.
According to Shapiro, rising college costs and “ballooning” student debt balances are making more prospective students question the return on investment in higher education.
The Federal Reserve said last month that the total student debt in the US has nearly tripled since 2008, increasing from $619 billion to more than $1.77 trillion.
CNBC also cited studies by Lumina and Gallup pollsters that suggested that most of those who put their education on hold did so due to financial issues such as program costs, inflation, and the need to work. –RT
With fewer people willing to go to college, fewer will be exposed to the mental prison of statism. The only reason the ruling class can stay in power is because people believe they must obey (be slaves) to their masters because they have some kind of “authority” or power over them.
