William G Perry Jr and Caroline Bird both have their own perspective on our education system Based on their essays Examsmanship And The Liberal Arts A Study In Educational Epistemology and College Is A Waste Of Time And Money written by the authors above respectively views ranging from one end to the other end of the scale were found Although there is a huge contradiction between Bird and Perrys idea there are some thoughts in their essay that supports each others ideas Certain parts of Perrys and Birds essay sees eye to eye on college does not prepare students for the job industry The majority of students feel that going through college did not help prepare them for their job In one of Birds interview she listened to a 1970 Mount Holyoke graduate When I got out I made up my mind that I wasnt going to school anymore because so many of my courses had been bullcensored465 They go to college expecting to learn a lot about the career they are interested in but instead they end up taking a bunch of classes that dont really have anything to do with their career choice Then when they actually go and try to get a job in their field they find out that their college diploma is not really helping them get the job Most of the time they learn how things work kind of like on the job training and they really dont use much from what they learned in college Many college students would feel that college is a waste of money because they do not learn what they want to Instead they have to take classes that have close to nothing to do with their major but are only taking these classes in order to fulfill a general educational requirement which is just a waste of time Why bother when these extra times could be spent on classes within their major
