Why does every college in America require students to fill their schedules with classes that will introduce information that students will never use again in their life? Is this so that each student will get use to cramming enough useless information in their heads in order to pass general classes and boost their GPA?Attending a college or university should be to give students a degree in an area of interest not to give the college or university a “Liberal Arts Environment.” Students that come to a college/university with a predetermined major should be allowed to skip over some of the general education or substitute them for classes offered in their major. By eliminating classes that will not be necessary for certain degrees can cut the time and cost of education across America. The cut in time can propel students into the work force faster, enabling students to make money and cut down on their student loans when they leave college. In a troubling economic time why does the education system require students to stay in school longer and accumulate more debt? Though the idea is far-fetched, by cutting down the number of required general elective classes, the education system could cut down on student debt and increase the number of educated workers.
