catastrophe is opportunity
(via How to Save College | The Awl)

From The Awl piece:

If you want to know what college is actually like in this country, forget Swarthmore, with 1500 students. Think Houston Community College, with 63,000. Think rolling admissions. Think commuter school. Think older. Think poorer. Think child-rearing, part-time, night class. Think 50% dropout rates. Think two-year degree. (Except don’t call it that, because most graduates take longer than two years to complete it. If they complete it.)
If you want to know what college is actually like in this country, skip Google Images, and scroll through the (still heartbreaking) We Are The 99 Percent Tumblr, looking for the keywords “student loan.”


This School fees vs. Salary chart is alarming. Like, even in today’s music business there’s more competition and less opportunity (that’s a double-whammy of negative circumstances.
However, l also think this scenario is because of the internet. Musicians practicing their scales 12 hours a day have no idea how to use adaptive technologies, so while in school they’re concentrating on building only one set of “muscles” while ignoring other critical ones.

this could be a problem
