Mike Rowe: COVID-19 has revealed college for what it REALLY is

'You're gonna be left with a breathtakingly overpriced product'

In this episode of "The Rubin Report," BlazeTV host Dave Rubin was joined by "Dirty Jobs" star Mike Rowe to talk about the effects of the COVID-19 lockdowns and how they might permanently change many aspects of our lives.

Mike explained why he believes the pandemic has revealed college and higher education to be an overpriced luxury and said he hopes that this will cause us to rethink how we structure education in the US.

"I think when the dust settles, higher education is going to be revealed as the luxury brand that it truly is," he told Dave. "And when you take away all of the stuff that has nothing to do with learning or connecting, you're gonna be left with a breathtakingly overpriced product."

I agree 100%

I also think people will reconsider their ridiculous loyalties to pro sports teams. It is child- like and a tremendous waste of resources for families.

Used toilet paper has more value then most degrees. When the democrats caused the loss of so many jobs they successfully convinced the dopes that all their troubles will end with a degree. democrat voters none who even are of the average intelligence fell for this line of bull. In the meantime standards were lowered in public U's and colleges and the "education" anyone is getting is well below average. They came up with asinine degrees like "women's studies" "african american" studies, "sports team management" and so on that all you will end up is a peon your whole life. Any english major is a waste as is sociology. The list is endless of useless degrees.

I would say childish rather than childlike. There's a huge difference.

Distance learning is going to be revealed as a very viable alternative to the undergraduate four (five or six) year sleep-away camps that colleges too often are. The proofs that increasingly overpriced brick and mortar schools are due for major conceptual overhauls are many, as evidenced by bloated administrative budgets (a dean for everything under the sun), diminishing real world educational worth, and skyrocketing tuition and often absurd fees to match.
