UK dumped free college

  • Yeah... I noticed how fast the initial token amounts charged skyrocketed. I guess too many with doctorates making happy faces in the foam for customers convinced the brits that college may not be for everyone after all.

  • The amount that is 'free' should be based on ones grades, imho. The better the grade the less you pay back but some of it should be paid back. Just barely graduate and pay the full amount.

  • That sounds great. Imagine a woke professor grading papers and deciding how to grade an opinion paper. No pressure on the content, right? It's only money.

  • Mexican Americans.........take spanish.........and get a B....

  • Schools here taught Parisian French which isn't the French spoken here in Kanuckistan.

  • Same thing here---in high school they taught Castilian Spanish, when all you would ever run into was beaners from Mexico

    If politicians only got paid according to their district's economic success, there would be no more Democrats.

  • Took 3 years of German, what a waste of time that was. Should have taken Spanish.

    Ya I was the same way,they made me do the final exam,the only person in my class to do so. Teacher never spoke a word of english to me and I never spoke a word of french back to her. At the end she asked,in french of course,if I desevered to pass her class and I said YES as I understood everything she said but didnt speak Parisian french.


    She gave me a 75 grade....LOL.

  • Had a Hispanic friend I worked with at the PO for over 30 years. Texas Valley Mexican. Miguel would go ballistic when these Mezkins came in and started with their Hybrid Spanish. He actually told one at the window that if you are going to speak spanish, at least try and speak it correctly. Rosetta Stone teaches proper Spanish (Espaina), not gutter speak.

  • I live in a community that is about 50% spanish/mex speakers.. what we end up with is a hybrid mex/english.. that is good for everyone .. think...........Blade Runner.........think........Firefly It is healthy to incorporate words from all languages and make them popular.. most mex's here will say "OK" or "yes" to things I will say "gracias" or "bueno" or a few others..

  • Well, when I worked at the busiest Station in deep South Austin, every friday the Illegals would come in and get their international Money Orders for Mexico, because they were always paid in cash. I had a heck of a time understanding some of them, so I told one who spoke english to have them write down every MO they wanted so there would be no errors. And every Friday they would all gather in front of "My" window with them all having little slips of paper. I could whip those MO's out faster than anyone else, and every late Fall they would disappear, and every spring they would show back up. Kinda miss those times.
