Not sure if srs. Part of my point is to criticize kids in college for procrastinating and being irresponsible. Really my criticism should be more for the US educational system that floats ****** students along without changing them much. But **** that I don't want to get into this on draft day.

Fair enough, but this is just a microcosm of what I'm talking about.

It's also, to be clear, not a reflection of the level of intelligence of all society. I firmly believe that, collectively, humans today are far better educated and intelligent than they have ever been. The issue is that damn near everyone goes to college now (because it's necessary) and that dilutes the meaning of "college-educated". Most of my students, thirty years ago, would be working in factories straight out of high school (and probably with much better career prospects).

I'm not doubting you.

That said, I think the use of the phrasing "We can't even imagine how much Jewish suffering there was in Nazi Germany" in itself is way worse than the "suffrage" error. That is awful writing for a college paper.

It is not a very collegiate sentence.

As a college student, I'd have to agree with this. There are people I'm going to graduate with that have no business being in school. For now it is getting out of graduate school that is a real accomplishment. I don't think I could have failed to graduate from college if I actively tried to.

I too worry about the decreasing value of a college degree. At my college, business majors had to take a class called Calculus for Business (basically Calculus I without the use of SIN, COS, and TAN). Two students and I (out of about 20 students) averaged about 95% on the tests. The class average hovered around 50. How bad did those other students have to do to pull down the class average so far.

I think a lot of it has to do with how easy it is to get student loans. People with no business being in college end up getting loans and decide to enroll. They do just enough to graduate but are no better prepared for the workforce than the average high school graduate. The labor force is now flooded with college graduates, many of whom are idiots.

Idiots, lazy idiots, or just lazy?

You're telling me out of 20 students who were accepted into a college only 2 had the ability to get good grades? I'd say its more like only 2 of them tried hard enough. Most people possess the intelligence to do well at school, less possess the work ethnic.

I will offer a third option. Many times students concentrate on their core classes 50x more than electives although this isn't really the case with business calc considering I doubt more than one of those students took it as an elective.

This sums up how I approach it.
I get what essentially amounts to straight A's in core classes.

I agree many are just lazy, but I majored in Economics and Political Science. It was unbelievable how terrible many of my fellow students in these two majors were at math. Many could not even do basic algebra that I could do in 6th grade. For example, we would have problems like this:

Y = 30 T + (50(1-T)) + 100 T
Solve for Y when T = 0.3, 0.2, & 0.15

The majority of my economics class looked at this like it was writing in Egyptian Hieroglyphics. This isn't laziness. This is complete inability to do basic math.
