I do hate to keep harping on this subject, but I must.
It’s been a long time ago, but I still remember the hardships endured by my son (and me) in order to obtain a college degree. At the end, everyone was so proud and he felt good about himself and his future.
There was no wanna-be dictator announcing that he and others wasted their time. I can’t imagine the damage this has done to the young achievers of today.
This is not a man who should judge anyone but being an ego-maniac he doesn’t realize. He seems to really believe that students should cater to his need to build Florida according to his specifications.
You might say he has illusions of grandeur. His mother kept telling us that “he is a good boy” (but that’s what mothers do). Did she also say he was in the Navy? So the federal government that he holds in such disdain paid for his education?
Many years ago, I worked for an employment agency. We looked forward to job applicants who had degrees. It did not matter that it may not be pertinent to the job offering. This was because achieving a degree told us much about the applicant.
It told us he/she was capable of setting goals and had the determination to follow through. It told us this person was willing to put forth the effort to achieve this goal. They were able to apply themselves to the goals set forth by the school (future employers).
In most cases they had part-time jobs. They were willing to make the necessary sacrifices in the present in order to secure their future. They had all the qualities an employer was looking for with great potential for promotion.
