Watching videos like this one makes me think that there isn't much value in the post-secondary education that is being offered at most schools. I have several friends who after spending up to 6 years earning their degrees are now unemployed or are otherwise struggling to find employment.
What about you guys? Did you get degrees in something that you were interested in or something that could be easily applied? For those who have finished school, in retrospect, did your education pay off the effort and time that you have invested? How easy or tough has it been for you to find employment with your degree?
Reading some of the classical literature I also get a sense that education was better "back in the days" and it contributed to the genesis of some of the greatest minds. Is there some kind of global education crisis going down right now?
