College doesn't make you smarter, study finds.
A new study has found show no significant improvement in the key measures of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing among students by the end of their sophomore years.
You are told that to make it in life, you must go to college. You work hard to get there. You or your parents drain savings or take out huge loans to pay for it all. And you end up learning ... not much.
A study of more than 2,300 undergraduates found 45 percent of students show no significant improvement in the key measures of critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing by the end of their sophomore years.
Not much is asked of students, either. Half did not take a single course requiring 20 pages of writing during their prior semester, and one-third did not take a single course requiring even 40 pages of reading per week.
The findings are in a new book, "Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses," by sociologists Richard Arum of New York University and Josipa Roksa of the University of Virginia. An accompanying report argues against federal mandates holding schools accountable, a prospect long feared in American higher education.
And roger, it is unfortunete though. Any point trying to be made is clouded by personal biases as oppossed ot being objective. If it helps, I am not angry.....
And the humilation and subjugation contiues.....
hmm.... last time I checked it took two to play. But then this is where the double standard comes into play. Men are players and women are 'hos. Men get perscriptions for viagra so they can poke anything with a hole and women are the ones who have to pay the price, while same men walk away without looking back. IMHO, this is just to grind women under the male heel so men can feel powerful and in control.
Equal medical access. If I can't have BC then you can't have viagra. If I am denied medical information that impacts my health because of the possibility of not having an abortion then your medical information regarding your prostrate cancer. needs to be with held. If I can't have the morning after pill after i've been raped then you don't get mediation due to the social disease you have contracted. And so on as so forth.
because the issue at hand is equal medical access which the PTB wishes to deny women while rewarding men for similar activity.
when I say "you" I am not speaking of you specifically but men in general.
Here is a wonderful opportunity for an entrepreneur to make a smart business move. If the assumption is correct, that there’s a huge demand for insurance companies to provide birth control, and (again, if the assumption is correct) there is a lack of insurance companies doing this; then there’s a market to be had. Take away the unhappy customers and offer insurance plans that provides this demand. That’s how smart business men become successful. No mandate, no regulation, no bi-partisan law. Simply the market providing the supply to meet the demand.
Thank you for that info Sebekm, if true it will go a long ways toward having healthy and productive women.
