Dream Factories

Ken S. Coates, Bill Morrison

Two professors take a look at the mystique round universities and the results of “credentialism.”

For many years, we’ve got promoted the concept that a college diploma is a passport to future profession success. Ken Coates and Invoice Morrison argue that the over-promotion of upper schooling and college levels is definitely undermining the lives of younger folks, saddling them with huge money owed, and costing governments large quantities of cash.

Because the younger flock to universities in ever-increasing numbers, fewer of them than ever discover the elusive “good jobs” that they’re pursuing. The truth is, a lot of these jobs not exist. We’re within the midst of a youth employment disaster that’s world in proportion, and we face critical misunderstandings concerning the unfolding profession prospects for younger adults coming into a world of fast technological change. Ken Coates and Invoice Morrison discover the impacts of universities turning out graduates with the flawed expertise, and the results of vanishing job alternatives.
