: This makes it more realisticially a matter of choice for the prospective student, to gather knowledge about what happens post study, and which skills are likely to result in which jobs / salaries. Then we can observe the student not as valient but doomed rebel against capitlaism, but merely as someone who chose from a menu what to study.

SDF: As a possessor of more than one degree, I really don't see why one's education must necessarily start with the act of sucking up to the job market. Once upon a time, people used to claim that they wanted to study things because they wanted to know about them. I guess it doesn't surprise me that procapitalists take the stand that it is necessary for knowledge to go whoring after money.
