Consumerist: Making Debtors Of Our Students?
I am shocked that there are far too many Medical and other Colleges/Universities been set up nationwide offering all forms of courses and making all forms of claims!
How much of it is truth and others pure unadulterated fiction to sell dreams that will never be attained while reaping huge obese millions as fees for the owners and spear headers of these ventures?
In the field of medicine alone, we have over stretched the number of schools, colleges, universities compared to even the UK!
We are not just talking about entry requirements but the training, exposure and eventually whether these individuals are equipped to a job of life saving, dedication, sacrifice – which is essentially revolving around education, skills and training?
In aviation alone, many took huge loans hoping to be pilots but now jobless and now urged to go into helicopter training which will be another half a million?
How sure are the advisers of these stupid schemes that there is a guarantee of a job when another huge amount is paid as fees by loans taken or by usage of the families saving?
Interesting these politically connected businessmen behind these schemes masquerading as education entrepreneurs when investigated seem to have a questionable track record and past and only their sine biotic relationships with the country’s powerful political elite assures them of non conviction or brickbats?
Perhaps, they avoid the radars by employing the nation’s well respected and prestigious once civil servants or professionals – their ‘get out of jail card?’
Already we are advised those thousands who took huge loans to do nursing and other support services are now either unemployed or are cashiers at hypermarkets or others urged to take up new untested specialties which is a no brainer either despite having unpaid debts from earlier loans?
These individuals now forced into been loan defaulters at such a young age while the owners of these schemes are laughing all the way to the bank and driving and living a bourgeois’ lifestyle and been awarded distinguished honorific’s but for what?
