    It’s easier today because SAT test scores and K – 12 academic performance are oftentimes disregarded in the interest of complying with politically correct policies and agendas. As such, today’s college courses have to be dumbed down in order to maintain the required level of passing students. That’s really the bottom line here, with our entire nation suffering accordingly.

      Have to agree! I would be very leery of the impact of politically correct Woke-ness in even the hard sciences these days. Only a few determined colleges such as Hillsdale, Christendom, maybe George Mason, etc. would have my trust in being truly concerned with “real” learning instead of indoctrination. I have taken some IT classes online with community/tech colleges to update my skills when I was working in that field, so am willing to give those benefit of my doubts of the schools overall, but in retirement I don’t care so much about that vocational area (although still would like to learn Python programming for some “dabbling”…)

    When all but elite colleges started pretty much open admission the requirements were lowered so kid’s woefully unready were kept in and ultimately graduated. Several experiments have shown most learn nothing during the four years in school.
