What's sad is this sends the wrong message to young people.
Heaven forbid.

We're already seeing people leaving college who think it's an automatic ticket into their career.
Gates, Jobs, Zuckerberg, Turner, Lauren, Ellison, Geffen...

Yeah, yeah, all famous exceptions. Well, the most successful woman I know personally has a GED.

America, at least, has put such an exaggerated emphasis on educational credentialing that it's become counterproductive.

What's the "right message to send to young people:" spend four years piling up $100,000 worth of non-dischargable debt in exchange for an entry-level ticket to a desk in a cube farm?

It's a movie. IDIC.
