My faith in common sense is restored: From Rasmussen:

Eighty-percent (80%) of Americans believe that individuals learn more practical skills through life experience and work rather than through college. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 9% disagree and say more is learned in college.

Democrats are more likely than Republicans to say college teaches more. Those not affiliated with either major party are more likely to say that life experience matters more.

This college professor says amen, and once again we see more common sense coming from Republicans.

Good point. Now, I don't know if the college you teach is mostly liberal arts (where its 4 years of memorizing theories) or if it has its share of practical degrees like engineering, computer science or nursing. Unfortunately, many employers will toss the resume aside if they don't see the initials "B.S" or "B.A." at minimum. There are exceptions, but this is what's typical in the corporate world.
It's funny how the people who need less education and have the cards in their favor are more cynical about it.
