If somebody does not like college a little or at all, should they stop going and make room for the rest?

    Apr 12 2012: I don't think that is a fair assumption your are making. I think it is the lack of inspiration/motivation mixed with other internal/external factors. Try to ask those individuals' why they don't like college and question them about their goals or passions in life. I don't think you should put down those who want to take a break, but if you really want to change or complain about something, then you should only look to the state wide or nation wide budget cuts they have in schools, which should solve your possible frustration with getting classes due to over abundance of students trying to get courses.

    Thanks for reading my thoughts and feel free to share yours'.
    • Apr 18 2012: I just spoke my mind a bit. I try to make my questions as broad as possible not to put negativeness towards people. Its a TED community, You can be direct, honest, or show withdrawal in any of these topics on TED. I never thought somebody should stop going to school. If they are just taking a course for benefits to get ahead in life then ... why not. People make mistakes everywhere like not completing homework, partying in the dorm rooms, getting a free bus pass even. Ive seen a lot. They use the money the school gives them and does not show up to class. I personally don't associate with them, but it all comes in knowing somebody better. People abuse the right to go to school in so many ways. People youtube.com things saying they wasted so many years and thinking that school should of never happened. If everyone was in it for the money or some way to benefit the community or something else productive... then why not. All I am saying is that some should be allowed in collage and some not. I'll have another debate if there should be more classes taught in college... idk yet.
