Learning and Education – Part 5: Thoughts for the future

What did I learn from the Interview? Maybe the most important thing is, that the education currently does not fit the requirements of the job market. With the implementation of Masters and Bachelors Germany is forcing people who are deemed unfit on unwilling employers. Then we are offering to few positions for advancement to masters, wihich would have been unnecessary if the employers had been duly prepared.

What can be done to improve the situation? Businesses could hire people with bachelor degrees and see if it works out. Why shouldn’t it? Then universities need to use the money they have better to offer more paths to usable degrees, or they really need to stop asking for money. Maybe we should return to the old ways of Magisters and Diploms. Sure they are less international, but at least students could find jobs in Germany with both degrees.

We need a usable Education for everyone, and either students can pay money and expect an education that will make them some more money in return, or education can remain and return to being free and you have the luxuries to make some mistakes but have to put up with one or the other full auditorium.
But an education that costs you money and years of your time and leaves you unable to support yourself, that is unacceptable and has to stop right now!

My Sources

Before I post any more on politics or economics, let me get one thing out there: I am probably not qualified.

I am not a politician or economic advisor, not a journalist nor have I studied any of the aforementioned subjects at a college or university.

Why do I comment on these things then?

I hope people will correct me, point out my errors and tell me where I have been misinformed. I will adjust my views accordingly. Here are the few things I do base my observations on:

  • Il Principe by Niccolò Machiavelli (german translation)
  • The Discourses on Livy also by Niccolò Machiavelli (german translation)
  • A short History of nearly everything by Bill Bryson
  • The Tipping Point by Malcom Gladwell
  • 孫子兵法 (Sun Tzu’s Military Principles)  as translated to german “Die Kunst des Krieges”. 
  • Die Süddeutsche Zeitung
  • Vice Magazine
  • Neon (magazine) 
  • CNN
  • Al Jazeera (via Youtube)
  • ARD/ZDF
  • RT (via Youtube) 
And of course the experiences of everyday life. I am working and i have been unemployed for over a year at a time. I am interested in political debate and problem solving on a national and global scale.
Keep tolling the bell.
