One bark on “Quote of the Day

  1. You couldn’t graduate from my university without taking at least the basic math course, Math 101. There were distribution requirements for disciplines all graduates had to suck up and take – a history course, a lab science course, English in one form or another and a language course. In the olden days, when I was a student at Vassar one had to comply with the phys. ed. requirement which put a lot of women in the pool rather than run around the track. I put off taking the math until I absolutely had to. It included instruction on figuring out interest rates (charge cards and bank loans) and I have to say I found it all mentally brutal. And quickly forgotten.

    College isn’t for getting a kid prepped for a job, it’s to make him or her EDUCATED.
