I don't think you understand what is going on.
Most Boomers could pay for a four-year education with 361 hours work at minimum wage. Today they would have to work 4,445 hours to do that.
And apparently you think we don't need anyone to have a worthless degree in English. Probably music and art and international studies are worthless too. I'll bet there are a thousand other different college majors that you would consider worthless.
A lifetime of debt to pursue worthless knowledge...? If they want to know something...they should just ask you and save all that money on education.
