Preet commented on Imagine a NEW Bachelor's degree

HI everyone,
This idea seems good on paper but if we talk about the real world this idea might be difficult to apply. i have few things to talk: traditional education is being designed by highly qualified people so we are no one who ignore this study structure. The modern educational structure is not applicable for each and every field. We have fields like engineering, medicine and doctors where this modern educational structure is not applicable. what we can do is we can ask for companies for financial aid and scholarships.
Modern educational structure is applicable only for limited fields like events, cloud computing, hardware repairing, computer networkings and marketing. All these fields are based on practical knowledge. There should be universities or colleges who offers the shorter programs for these fields and also have the connection with professional world so that these students can get jobs.

Gavin,
I completely agree with your point. i also have one idea, what if high schools and companies do a collaboration and companies ask for the list of the students who are actually doing good but don't have enough money to study further. Companies also provide special schools or college for these students where these students can get free education. companies can do this under the CSR activity.
