College Education?: Shocking New Research Proves That Our College Students Are Learning Next To Nothing
Have you ever wondered what all those college students are actually learning? Well, according to one shocking new study, they are apparently not learning much at all. According to very extensive research detailed in a new book entitled “Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses”, 45 percent of U.S. college students exhibit “no significant gains in learning” after two years in college. For many Americans, a statistic like that comes as a complete shock, but for anyone that has spent much time in or around U.S. colleges lately this should not come as much of a surprise. This new research also found that today’s students spend approximately 50% less time studying than U.S. college students did just a few decades ago. What this research shows is what many of us have known for a long time – that the quality of college education in the United States today is a complete and total joke.
