When he first moved to Miami, Waltter Teruel says working as a recruiter for ITT Technical Institute was a welcome change from his life in New York where he was selling antiques and life insurance.

As a recruiter, Teruel says ITT Tech took care of the pitch to potential students for you. Recruiters used scripts set out in detailed Powerpoint presentations and got long lists of prospective students to call. But soon the welcome change faded. “Most of these students, they were looking for a job,” not more school, says Teruel.

When ITT Technical Institute closed, employees began to share tightly-designed sales tools, like those Powerpoints, that offered a glimpse into the strategy that helped the company grow to more than 130 campuses across the country.

But those same tactics ultimately contributed to the company’s downfall when the Department of Education ruled, in part because of its aggressive recruiting, ITT could no longer enroll new students using federal loans.

What Former Employees Say ITT Tech Did To Scam Its Students

Y'all act like George W. Bush (who went to yale, harvard), Bill O'Reilly (who went to harvard), Glenn Beck (who went to yale), and Mitt Romney (who went to harvard), etc. are anomalies among prestigious universities.

These people are not unintelligent; these people are not uneducated.

Acquisition of higher education isn’t the same as not being willfully ignorant. You can be highly educated and say ignorant shit, it’s actually pretty common: hence this blog.

Stop putting your faith in our education system to rid our society of systematic oppression. Higher education actively encourages oppression.

Want to 'train your brain'? Forget apps, learn a musical instrument
Musical training can have a dramatic impact on your brain’s structure, enhancing your memory, spatial reasoning and language skills
By Mo Costandi

“Music reaches parts of the brain that other things can’t,” says Loveday. “It’s a strong cognitive stimulus that grows the brain in a way that nothing else does, and the evidence that musical training enhances things like working memory and language is very robust.” 

“The Change” ~ Suzanne Cheryl Gardner
“Discarding her past In the inbetween time Where it is murky and gray though golden hues hint of the magic she has acquired. She recreates herself From once a beautiful butterfly comes a soul deepening and growing a new kind of wings. Wings with wisdom and vision The Change of Life is a physical transformation. It is a time for self-reflection, but most importantly the pause of menses. It is known that blood holds deep wisdom. From the primordial ooze to the glories of everlasting life she carries her wisdom within. Her gaze towards even more enlightenment holds promise that she will create a new life free from the past, full of the essence of Goddess—unconditional love and service to others. She is a powerful metaphor for all kinds of unmasking and change—our world is in constant transformation. When we can accept change as being something powerful and life enhancing we open to the metamorphosis process more easily.”
