Students in this day can make much better choice since they pick up the one that fit their background or their preference. Some chooses accounting, others study administration and growning of student chooses to study philosophy or anthropology.
Also, degree differentiation are much change now. Unlike in the past that scholars became a scholar without any legal certificate. Today there are degree for all students. As long as they come to school regular, they should be awarded a degree. And if they student harder and longer, they should be given a Ph.D or Doctorate certificate.
With this development, our world is consisting of many learned men and women. We should be proud of it, shouldn't we? No, not at all. The world is much develp in terms of subject expansion and degree increasing. However, the world is moving far away from learning to live a good and safe life. The world is ignoring the essence of life lesson that are so important to every of us. They keep focusing on creating mechanic, studing the earth, ocean and weather, but they did not study about their own life.
How to make life stable, less greedy, less anger, and less delusion. Have we much focused on these issues? No. Are these issues important to us? It is so relevant to us. It is very necessary for life but how many institutes, universities, faculties and department pay attention to it. So few. What happen if we don't know how to lead a good and safe life?
I will not answer this question. It is strongly recommended to read below short story told by Dr. S.N. Goenka, a half Burmese-Indian Vipassana coach. Please refer to the full story below and you can also download the whole book written by Goenka in the attachement:

“No, I don’t know how to swim.”
