Americans are being conned by their Public Servants (salared or subsidized) who are following their self-serving Pedagogues, Methodologists Dogmatists, Preceptors and Pundits. The primary function of U.S. higher education facilities and their endorsers is to keep young Americans out of the Labor Force until they are 24 years old -- and get them to pay for it. Why? There is no room in today's U.S. 21st Century Servant Class Workforce (A.I.).
FLASH! The Department of Labor just announced "the U.S. private-sector lost 140,000 jobs" (December 2020).
It is time for Americans to get up off their knees so they can see further down the Road of Life and find its Vantage Points.

Scholastic Engineering's Postulate for Ys-UP America! (What it is. What it does. How it does it. Why you should care. In 60 words or less.)
YsUpAmerica.com is an instructional Program that Virtually Preps candidates for Top Tier employment in the U.S. workforce in the Digital Transformation created Virtual World of the 4th Industrial Revolution that required a 4th Intellectual Reformation to develop the Intellectual Capabilities / Competencies and Collaboration-in-Context skill sets necessary to staff a workforce that can successfully compete in the Price:Value driven Global Economy of the 21st Century.

Here's a DIY Scholastic Engineering Analysis > Evaluation > Stress Test for any Prepping / Schooling / Training Program that offers students a road to a better life.
An Instructional Program that can deliver on its Promises — has 7 Components that must be recognized and accommodated during the instruction/learning Process, plus 13 Considerations. Applicants' interpretation and response is purely personal and possibly unique (dictated by their Life experiences > their Context).
"To be or not to be > worth someone's time and money."
Considerations — 1) Do both the Instructional Process and Content directly support / contribute-to your personal aspirations > expectations > employment Goals?
2) Is the Content presented in a manner that will facilitate your on-Demand recall of pertinent knowledge so that you can apply it immediately and appropriately to a task/activity at hand in a real world workplace?
3) Provides certification of your capabilities / competencies so that you go to the head of the Hiring line, Bonus line, Promotion line? Confirm Ys-Ways: Functional Intelligence Verification > Certificates of Confirmation > Degrees of Competence.
4) Is the time frame, schedule, location accessible and the Program a Price:Value match for you?
5) Is the content student-centered? or instructor-centered? or institution-centered?
6) Does Instruction process stimulate / develop / build your Functional Intelligence?
7) Does Instruction process facilitate the DIY development of job related Mental Acuity?
8) Is the instruction collaborative or cooperative or compliant?
9) Does the Presentation help you optimize your communication skill Sets? Verbal: speech - reading - literally / metaphorically (tone-vocabulary). Visual: graphically - conceptually in context (Big Picture). Pantomime: performance - behavior (Tics-Tells). Listening: comprehending - cataloguing - prioritizing -curating
11) Is the Process: Informative? Mentoring? VocEd? > Encourages participation or demand conformance? (Grades - promotion - Gold Stars)
12) Supplies a Ready Reference System for filling in the blanks or meeting new challenges? Google's Syntopicon vs. an academic artifact and its Dewey Decimal System?
13) Will you become "indispensable" and grow > or become "expendable" and unemployed?
Colleges and Universities can be rated
by the contribution they make to the economy and lifestyle
of the communities they serve. Some comparisons --
• Stanford University and UC Berkeley are the academic roots of Silicon Valley that led the SF Bay Area to become the epicenter of the Virtual World and California to become the 5th largest Economy in the World. (World Bank)
• San Jose State University sends more graduates into well paying jobs with a future in the BioSciTech 4IR2 Workforce than all the graduates of UCSD + SDSU + SDU combined. In Fact, UCSD + SDSU + SDU and their 20th Century VocEd curriculums serve the largest public-servant labor force in the U.S. (outside of Washington DC and Blue State Capitols). The only significant BioSciTech company in San Diego County is Qualcomm and its local supply chain. That is until it is replaced in Apple's supply chain. Intel's out. Qualcomm may be teetering.
• Actually, San Diego County is to California as Florida is to the USA. Both are Parasites on their Host's Body Politic. Both lack an industrial component that provides well paying jobs with a future for their residents, and both have seriously threatened local Tourists industries. Florida pollutes its own off-shore waters. San Diego County lets Tijuana, Mexico pump raw sewage into their off-shore waters.
• To add insult to injury to the San Diego Area: UCSD + SDSU formed the Graduate School of Public Health that carries the Banner of George Washington and the Colonial Army at Valley Forge during a Flu epidemic (1776): "Wear masks, social distance and stay in your tents." BioSciTech and the 21st Century are not a part of the Public Health conversation in the USA.
• It is doubtful that the combined faculties of all 3 universities > UCSD + SDSU + SDU > could staff a virtual 1-room school house that could properly Prep candidates for Top Tier employment in the 21st Century's 4IR2 workforce.
• Today's Covid-19 is airborne and susceptible to air sanitizing via existing air-conditioning systems. Reversing the air flow > installing HEPA filters and UV-C gauntlets in appropriate locations could reduce the Transmission density rate 60%-80%. Combining Air sanitation and Portable breath analyzers that give instant COVID-19-presence readings for incoming people traffic could make an air sanitized facility a mask free zone. Unfortunately, the Laws of Nature, Newton's Laws of Gravity, Technology and Engineering seem to be outside the purview of America's parsed U.S. Academic/Medical Community.
What follows is the necessary curriculum to — DIY–Prep for Top Tier employment during the Age of Automation (2012–2072).
Computer-based Digital Transformation (D.T.) has created Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) that is driving U.S. University Degree-based Skill Sets from the Top Tier Workforce. A University Degree is no longer the Pathway to Prosperity. The 21st Century Top Tier will have to know How-to manage A.I.+ Robotics + Innovation > DIY On-The-Fly.

Experience 21st Century X-cetera+Ys-Ways Schooling
(1)Bad News> University Graduates — Why did Apple, et al., vote U.S. University Graduates "Off the Island"? American Universities and their graduates have no "concept" or "context" of Functional Reality. To get a Grip on Reality you need to know the game on which your/yours lifestyle depends. A rising National Debt, rising Trade Deficits and rising Inflation — that are growing faster than product sales — do not portend a prosperous future. (Mentored: $12/person)
(2)U.S. Consumer Economy — its Arena - its Rules - its Players - its Coaches - its Divisions - its Games. In 2018, there were 243 million eligible to work and 193 million available to work. However, there are only 97 million gainfully employed taxpayers in the USA. They have a 3.5% unemployment rate. That means 60% of the U.S. Labor Force is unemployed — when there are 7.5 million jobs available, searching for qualified applicants. (Mentored: $12/person)
(3)The U.S. Bi-modal Workforce is moving beyond the assembly-line-thinking of U.S. 20th Century "Silo" business perspectives — that have built an American Society segregated by gender, race, religion — that can't compete in a 4IR² Global Economy that is moving toward workforces divided by Functional Intelligence. 21st Century, 4IR² "A.I.- Age of Automation", Industry 4.0 enterprises demand a New Way of Learning > Thinking > Doing. (Mentored: $12/person)
(4)SOS: The Science of Schooling. America's Economic life-boat in the 21st Century. "Ys Ways" knows that it is possible to optimize our Functional Intelligence and our ability to comprehend increasingly complex schemes (Mental Acuity) by tuning-up the functionality of our X or Y chromosome-dictated, Genetic Profile-built, Physiology-based Intellect that generates our Functional Intelligence (upgradeable to participate in a 4IR > Industry 4.0 workplace). (Mentored: $16/person)
(5)The 4th Intellectual Reformation. It is truly "Back to the Future". The 4th Intellectual Reformation is reviving the Goals of the American Revolution, resurrecting the U.S. Constitution where our Founding Fathers "codified" the teaching of Jesus Christ as presented in Jefferson's Bible (49 pages vs. KJB 1,100 pages), and restoring America's Promise "to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity" by building Functional Intelligence.
