All that money spent to go to college, or going into debt for, and you aren't even guaranteed a job.

There needs to be obvious, major changes with this stuff. Free college and guaranteed jobs, would be a start.

I have no idea how people pay around 60,000 dollars a year to attend a university. I just assume the students have rich parents.
This is where we disagree.

Why should I pay for someone else to go to university whilst I work my fingers to the bone for them to potentially get a better job than me?

My unpopular opinion? A college education is overrated if there isn’t a demand for the field you studied.

More emphasis needs to be put on skilled trades. There is high demand for it and you can make really good money with a career in it.

Wrong. Engineering and skilled trades work with algebraic expressions every day. As well as geometry.

They should strap 90% of classes barring Science, English and Maths. Everything else should be vocational. Plumbing, electronics, engineering, building, cooking, business management. History, Art, Sport, Geography are all fine but they won't get you a decent job that benefits the economy. They can be additional (unless directly linked to other subjects, for example art = design = engineering) in which case they can be considered.

Students shouldn't be forced to enter 12 classes per day.

I disagree entirely,you have a whole generation of people with low self esteem because they suck at knowing how to master standardized tests,and others who know how to ace tests but still lack other skills. Your kid who is falling behind in math and science early who is best served in a vocational career is more likely to find a potential vocation if he or she tries a whole bunch of electives growing up.Not to mention a kid with a passion for a sports, photography, sewing, woodshop, home ec,dance. etc is gonna be able to grind the required classes if he or she has something motivating them to go to school each day.

Re: What is 1 unpopular opinion you have on education?

Education is sh*t. My goal is to find a stack that will allow me to improve my cognitive functions to get into University.
The only ones that catch my eye are:
Pyritinol
Aniracetam
L-Huperzine A
Phenylethylamine
Piracetam
Which of these should I take? https://nootropicboost.com/buy-best-nootropics/ I know that some of these have properties that overlap so I was wondering which combination of these would be best?
Thanks so much for everyone's time.

Having to take music appreciation, indigenous studies, etc. while going to college for mechanical engineering is a waste of time!

Re: What is 1 unpopular opinion you have on education?

It doesn't prepare you for the real world. I saw a meme on FB the other day, and it couldn't be anymore true. The saying on it was something like "you know, to this day, I've never used the Pythagorean Theorem"

Also, how about they celebrate academics instead of the football players that can't read at a 4th grade reading level but somehow manage to pass all their classes. What a joke.........
