A friend of mine who is a senior in HS was taken on a field trip to Touro/Lander College.
Her school happens to be on a crusade against all colleges, saying things like; Ivy League schools are not at all any better than regular schools, they're just "brand names" and you pay extra for the name, YU is for people who pretend to be frum, but aren't really, just like to think they are, while CUNY is goyish, and so one may as well already go to Touro.
Since her school is full of people who either aren't frum or are pretty modern, from the realistic standpoint, advocating Touro is better than discouraging all colleges (because then the students may listen), so the school made a field trip.
Anyway, while she was there, we were texting back and forth, making sarcastic comments.
Then she texts me and says "One good thing about Touro."
I go "nu?"
And she says "Flatbush guys right across the street"
And I go "why would you want a HS guy when you're in college?"
And she says "To solve the shidduch crisis"
I started literally lmao. I was laughing out loud.
Anyway, she was laughing while at Touro, and she told her friend why, and her friend was all like "what? You better stop, they won't want to accept girls from our school."
To which we replied "that'll be a mitzvah." :-)
Anyway, she texted me later on in the day to say those bozo teachers she has were all talking about its better to choose SCAS over Kingsborough.
Now...I'm not fan of ANY Touro divisions, but SCAS is like dumbass of the dumbass of colleges.
Why do frum people feel that being stupid will perpetuate their lifestyle? If more of them were educated we wouldn't have a tuition crisis, a shidduch crisis (I don't believe in this disproportion in #'s, its a matter of refusing to date to prevent having to meet morons and in turn end up losing respect for all mankind) or a parnassa crisis.
