Tear it Down


Who needs education?

Popular sentiment

Higher education is too expensive
Higher education isn’t worth the careers it actually offers
Higher education degrees are pointless

In a way that’s true

We don’t need to train

Doctors
Engineers
Teachers
Architects
Nurses
Molecular Biologists
Physicists

We can just import them

Higher education is cheaper in other countries anyway

We can just let immigrants take all those jobs

They can provide our healthcare
They can design our cities
They can engineer our lights-our factories
They can contract with our government space program

Right?

I don’t have anything against immigrants

And we won’t be bringing tired, poor, huddled masses. We’ll be bringing well educated professionals to do these jobs for us.

I have no problem with that, though I think maybe others do
