Dumbing down college degrees further, semester by semester. Basic Economics has been replaced as a core class by something simpler that emphasizes Keynes's theories. And now, my state has decided to do away with basic Algebra as a requirement to graduate.
Wonderful. By so doing, they're devaluing the degrees of those that took Algebra. I mean, I can sort of see it for trade schools, for trades that have little to do with math (which are damn few), but not for liberal arts colleges and universities.
Coming soon: Master's degree required for a basic, entry-level position at most jobs.
