… college grads with a fine arts degree are far worse off than the average high school dropout in the labor market. Even the lucky ones who do have a job are worse off. The rest are not only unemployed, but probably drowning in student-loan debt.
Meanwhile, the unemployment rate for people with less than a high school diploma is 5.7% – significantly better than those with art school degrees – as America’s employers increasingly turn to the cheapest unemployed resources and train them on the spot. __ ZH
Fine Arts majors are less employable than high school dropouts. The unemployment rate for graduates in fine arts in the US is 9.1%, while for high school dropouts the unemployment rate is 5.7%!
Too many university departments have become glorified daycare centers for incompetent perpetual adolescents (both students and staff). Much time wasted, certainly. But far worse than that is the destructive indoctrination these youth receive in the place of a useful education. This indoctrination makes them even less fit for work in any productive sector of the economy.
Dangerous Children Aim to Construct Their Own Destinies
Instead of passively absorbing the programming and indoctrination that entraps most youth of today, Dangerous Children start early on the path of self-determination. Early on, they learn to teach themselves and seek out the special mentors they will need for development of special skills. Most Dangerous Children have the equivalent of a college education before the age of 18, and possess the practical skills to achieve financial independence at least three different ways by that time.
Dangerous Children do not train so much for “jobs,” as for innovative achievement in their own right. This means that DC’s are more likely to become entrepreneurs and employers (or coordinators of independent contractors) rather than employees — over the long run. If a Dangerous Child wishes to go on to become a neurosurgeon or theoretical physicist, he will pay his own way.
The Dangerous Child way of thinking is quite different — far more independent — from that of most persons, and is ideally learned quite early in childhood development.
It is never too late for a Dangerous Childhood © but the earlier begun, the better.
