Are colleges needed?

As a student in college I find myself constantly asking myself why I am actually here. I sit in classes I dont want to take, to learn things I will be re-taught when I enter the workforce, to get a degree that may not get me a job. I understand the value of education but why must people go to learn in a classroom where they could learn in practice.

  • Oct 18 2013: It is not only degree but where you get it. I have argued against HR about this and actually hired people with no degree or did not go to the "right schools" against the "advice" of HR.
