Student drops out of University because he was 'scammed'
If you are doing really well at University, you fell more encouraged to stay right? Well, not Billy Wilson, who has dropped out of Kansas State University after just one semester.
In a post on his Facebook page, he states the price as to why he decided to drop out. He wrote an open letter to accompany a picture of him flipping off the University's sign.
See the post below:
The full message reads:
Now that i've finished my first semester I think it's safe to say... FUCK COLLEGE. Now before all you of you go batshit crazy... i have a few points to make
1. Yes I have dropped out after finishing my first semester (with a 4.0 GPA). And it's one of the best choices I've ever made. Not because I am averse to learning, but actually the exact opposite.
2. YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED. You may not see ittoday or tomorrow, but you will see it some day. Heck you may have already seen it if you've been through college. You are being put thousands into debt to learn things you will never even use. Wasting 4 years of your life to be stuck at a paycheck that grows slower than the rate of inflation. Paying $200 for a $6 textbook. Being taught by teacher's who have never done what they're teaching. Average income has increased 5x over the last 40 years while cost of college has increased 18x. You're spending thousands of dollars to learn information you won't ever even use just to get a piece of paper. I once even had an engineer tell me "I learned more in my first 30 days working than in my 5 years of college." What does that tell you about this system? There are about a million more ways you're being scammed into this.. just watch the video i'm gonna comment if you want to see more.
3. Colleges are REQUIRING people to spend money taking gen. ed. courses to learn about the quadratic formula (and other shit they will never use) when they could be giving classes on MARRIAGE and HOW TO DO YOUR TAXES.
4. Gosh there are so many more reasons I could add, but just comment if you disagree or have reasons to add. I'd love to add to the discussion. TAG a friend in college, Tag your parents, share this if you agree, disagree. Let's just talk about it. Heck post a picture of yourself flipping off something you think is unjust in our society. #FuckInjustice
EDIT: Just released a T-Shirt to help spread the awareness further, Check them out on my page. 10% of profits will got to Boys & Girls Club of America to help empower underprivileged youth to become our future leaders.
Do you agree with him? Should he have quit?
