There’s some fantastic people in my class, don’t get me wrong. I think half of my Calc class is going to U of M (overpriced for what you get if you ask me). I don’t think it’s the text book knowledge me generation is lacking, it seems to be the common sense. Letter grades have taking over face-to-face interviews and we’re loosing the human element to be more efficient.
There’s always a bell curve in pretty much everything, and I do see that in school too. There’s just as many rocket scientists as there are McPloyees in every class. We need both as both are vital for any economy too.
