A Sign that the Apocalypse is Upon Us (in the community college)

I agree.

 Here’s a quote from the President of Macomb Community College in a piece titled “For career success, a higher degree means higher earnings”:
“Macomb [Community College] is working with the federal government and other community colleges to better prepare students for the world that exists, not the world they want to live in. It has meant working closely with employers and teaching the ‘foundational’ skills that employers crave…”
Makes perfect sense:  We wouldn’t want (our) students to live in a world they actually wanted to live in; and we wouldn’t want (our) students to actually change the world.
We want our students to live in a society with growing social and economic inequality–but one that works well for the rich.
