Tuition-free education is uncommon in the United States’ Higher Education system, but not so uncommon in other places around the world. Further, one could make the argument that the top schools are found in the United States.
However, if one looks at the output -the graduates- created by these universities, top schools or the smaller less known, one can clearly see either an individual being prepared for life in academia, the perpetuation of the system, or an individual being prepared for a life of employment.
So, where are the innovators? The creators? The entrepreneurs? Where do they come from?
We -at InSB- believe we are missing the point with the current system. We are burdening the students -economically and academically- to the point of preventing their full potential.
If we were to offset the economic burden, in addition to provide the students with truly applicable skills along with real-world opportunities to discover their strengths and passions, we would allow them the opportunity to take greater risks, ultimately opening room for the creation of innovation.
Help us, as we defy all the rules, taking our own risk to encourage others to do so -in AEC.
