Really. Are you telling me these students didn't have anything better to do with a year than to learn nothing about a subject they have neither the preparation nor interest for? Remind me in 10 years what it felt like when time and money were so easily thrown away. I bet you, like the pundits in the middle of the housing bubble were betting, that this does not last. There is a reason for the austerity we see in the educational systems of the rest of the world. We will soon be upon that reason. It is funny how the psychology of bubbles works. There is that period of time when you find yourself questioning fundamental principals, maybe even replacing them with new made up principles. And later, in hindsight of course, that is the time you look back on when you knew it wasn't going to last.
