How much of the information that you learned in college do you think you actually use today and how much do you remember? I would say about 10% of the shit, I forgot most of it...to much info to cram in during only 4 years.
Quite a bit, I'd say. Though my degree program was definitely built mostly on practical knowledge.

In college, 95% or higher. I work in a very specialized field and I understand I'm probably the exception to most people.

I don't even know the names of the classes I took. Hopefully I'm just really smart.
A lot. I enjoyed learning. I hate working.
If you think the information you learned was the most important thing about your education you totally missed the point....knowledge is just the lowest level of learning....it is when your education enables you to analyze, apply, synthesize and evaluate that you have learned things far more important. As a former chemistry teacher I never, ever made anyone memorize anything....it was all on the walls, a book or the board....I endeavored to have them use the knowledge as noted above. This is what is wrong with so much "teaching to the test" in schools these days. We are teaching stuff that is easily measured rather than more complex and important skills, while, at the same time, beating creativity and independent thinking to a pulp.
Remember, A. Einstein failed Algebra because he didn't allow himself to become bogged down in the petty little details.
Einstein actually never failed any of his classes.
But I'm totally on board with the rest of your speech.
Damn, that's a great post. I had a couple profs at tMSU that taught how you suggest. Great experiences and meaningful, challenging classes.
To the OP's question: I was a science major and got a teaching certificate. I am a rep and a manager and use my education every day. Research, analysis, presentation skills are crucial ("regular or whole wheat bread, sir?"). Most of the rest of my "team" (whom I didn't and wouldn't hire) struggle with articulating a message. Drives me fricking nuts, and I will have some firing to do in 2013.
I'm old, and I still enjoy learning.
It was just a mistake;
I didn't mean to let them take away my soul.
Am I too old?
Is it too late?
