Law school applications collapse: Get ready for schools to start closing | Hacker News
see comments ie: "There are lots of areas where formal education is a must. Even when you can self-teach everything, you still need some structure, some meta-learning, to learn what you need to study to build the pillars of your knowledge. And you still need some organization that certifies that you know what you claim you know. Medicine is an obvious example. Engineering is another. No-one would like to live in a tall building made by somebody who claims to know how to build tall buildings, but didn't go to college. I bet not many pharmaceutical companies would like to hire someone without a degree to design a new drug. [...] She started studying again, realizing that without a career, she's going to have a really hard professional future." &! "A college degree and a college experience is a nice thing to have, I think. But I doubt it's worth $250K as the price of basic entry to the job market. Something's got to give." &! https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8687714

Augstein-Kolumne: Große Koalition stabilisiert soziale Spaltung - SPIEGEL ONLINE
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prekariat >> "Eine große Studie hat jetzt den Zusammenhang zwischen sozialer Stellung und Wahlverhalten untersucht. Das Ergebnis ist eindeutig: Die gesellschaftlichen Verlierer wenden sich vom System ab. Sie fühlen sich nicht mehr vertreten - und sie werden auch nicht vertreten. 17,6 Millionen Deutsche verweigerten die Wahl. 2,7 Millionen mehr als für die CDU stimmten. Und je niedriger der Status, desto größer die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass ein Wähler zu Hause bleibt. Die Autoren der Studie sprechen von einer "sozial prekären" Wahl."
