Går for mange unge på universitet? En diskusjon.

Denne diskusjonen har flere dimensjoner i USA enn i Norge. Derfor er dette interessant å diskutere fra ett annet, mer komplekst ståsted.

Studentlån, kredittproblemer, ledigheten for bachelorstudenter historisk høy, lønn for en utdannelse er vesentlig høyere enn ikke-utdannede, innovasjon diskriminerer ikke via utdanning, osv. osv.

Diskusjonen var i fin amerikansk tro, med 4 designerte debattanter. 2 for og 2 mot.

Debate: TOO MANY KIDS GO TO COLLEGE from Intelligence Squared U.S. on Vimeo.

Noen eksempler på argumentene:

    For:
  • For many, onerous student loans will at best neutralize the increased income derived from having a college education, and at worst put them in an untenable financial situation.

  • America’s high-tech, entrepreneurial economy rewards great ideas and innovation, regardless of one’s formal education.
  • A bachelor’s degree no longer guarantees a job— the unemployment rate for those with a BA is at an all-time high.
    Mot:

  • To stay competitive, Americans need more education, not less. A decrease in college degrees will result in an economy that lags behind other countries in every important category.
  • Getting a college degree has, and always will be, the best way for lower-income families to improve their economic status.
  • College educations provide much more than higher incomes; they produce well-rounded citizens who know how to communicate, solve problems and better understand the world.
