Best-selling author Bruce Goodmansen tells Thomas Renz: College is of no value to 85 percent of US workforce
“College is of no value to 85 percent of our nation’s workforce. In fact, out of 100 students who are accepted into college, 50 of them are going to drop out. And we now lead the world in college dropouts. And of the 50 students who do graduate, 30 of them will end up in jobs they could have gotten straight out of high school,” Goodmansen told host Thomas Renz during the April 5 episode of “Lawfare with Tom Renz” on Brighteon.TV
“So you can see that basically college is roughly somewhat helpful to maybe 15 percent of our nation’s population. There are roughly 30,000 careers to choose from, but a typical university only offers roughly 85 majors. That’s it, just 85 careers to choose from out of the 30,000. And it’s no wonder why a majority of our kids when they get to college are undecided. They haven’t decided what to major because the selection is so small. They see nothing that touches their heart, that makes their passions grow wild.”
Goodmansen said that his best-selling book “100% Success Without College” seeks to warn parents of the absolute nonsense that is happening in America’s colleges today. (Related: High price of admission for today’s college students? Loss of constitutional freedoms.)
The former dean’s graduate assistant in the College of Education at Brigham Young University cautioned parents about deciding to send their child to college since they will be financing the effort to destroy America. He said that this is not a hyperbole since today’s college has gotten way out of hand.
Career training and trading opportunities are offered outside college
The author and business expert said his book provides compelling reasons why parents should keep their children out of college as there are many opportunities out there in the world for career training. He said that the book also serves as an encyclopedia of career trading opportunities that are offered outside the college arena.
“And I’m telling you, kids who are taking these opportunities are earning fortunes. It isn’t the world of deadbeats that we’ve been led to believe by the high school guidance counselor. These are not dead beats and as a matter of fact, I would say the opposite now, the deadbeats who are serving our nation or walking about our nation are the college graduates,” Goodmansen stressed.
Renz took note that today’s colleges are really indoctrination centers that don’t teach students anything and are absolutely against critical thinking.
Goodmansen pointed out that 36 percent of American students do not demonstrate any significant improvement in learning skills over four years of college. He said that this means that a third of America’s college graduates will be no better off, better prepared or better skilled than the day when they stepped on campus as freshmen.
The best-selling author added that people can easily understand this just by reviewing the unscholarly courses that are offered by professors in colleges and universities.
“And on that note, there’s a state college that is offering a bachelor’s degree in anti-racist studies. This is unbelievable. And then over the last few decades, there has been a 50 percent decline in the time spent by students for research and study hours. So it’s getting way out of hand,” Goodmansen said.
“In fact, there’s this fascinating survey that I just came across showing that the United States is home to 115,000 janitors, 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000 bartenders and about 35,000 taxi drivers. And what do they all have in common? They all have a bachelor’s degree.”
Goodmansen also cited a Harvard Business Review, which reported that 53 percent of college graduates did not apply to an entry level job in their field of study because they felt unqualified, unprepared and unskilled. He said that this is happening because college students are taking woke classes that their professors have invented.
“So I’m trying to tell parents that you got to understand that when your child goes to college, the college is going to give your child about four things back. They are going to have a loss of faith; they are going to have the loss of love for their country; they are going to have a mountain of debt; and they are going to have skills that corporate America just doesn’t want because they are antiquated,” Goodmansen said.
