RE: Why Men Are Avoiding College
I get a part of this, namely the SJW activities and female centric focus of modern campuses. However, it's far from truth to say college is entirely a scam and not worth it at all.

Firstly, a lot of men don't have enough guidance to even put on one pant leg at a time, let alone go into a trade or business out of high school. College can still be a place to find where you fit and develop your social skills independently. Yet, I digress.

The part that everyone seems to overlook in these college hate threads is networking. Now, forget about useless humanities degrees. I'm talking about STEM, and a few other areas such as Accounting and Finance. I come from Accounting, so I'll keep it at that for now. That being said, I know that other professions operate this way as well.

The largest Accounting/Consulting firms (Big 4, e.g. KPMG, EY, Deloitte, PWC) have partners that mostly went to certain schools. Hence they tend to recruit from THOSE schools. I have worked with people in those schools and they are excellent at what they do, period. Generally only the best of the best make it to the Big 4 even from these schools. So working your ass off is a must. Some of these are state schools, by the way. I also don't believe it's hard to get into these schools as long as you have your shit together.

I have 3 children as many know. As a father, I will not be teaching them that colleges are evil places these days and turn them into generalizing zombies. Instead I will be teaching them how to get into the best programs and evaluate who the hell to stay away from.The latter part just seems to have been missed in the current social justice environment. That goes a longer way than for example, asking them to read most comments in this thread. While I get this, a strong college education hasn't changed all that much. Just because SJWs invade college campuses doesn't mean we should run away from them as men and dismiss the college experience completely.

While I see trade schools as high value, I'd rather my children become Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers or Professional Business people.
