Which is then exacerbated by the cultural differences between boys and girls, that have a stronger presence in the shit parts of our country.
You go to a shit school here in South Florida (which is probably 80% of them), and consider that most of the population of these shit schools have no idea what even exists as career possibilities in any field.
Pour in the fact we all come from families who didn't necessarily have much of a career path for themselves either. The best may be that dad was in some specialized labor like A/C, plumbing, driving, etc.
Also pour in a large dose of drugs.
And lets not forget the huge impact on girls that is teen pregnancy.
My school had a 40+% drop out rate.
What kids make it out of that and into college, as opposed to just going into the untrained labor fields (majority of my friends are waiters and laborers, a small tiny percentage went on to college, but those that did stumbled into tech, engineering and research... one of my friends is the earlier joked about rocket scientist).
So these kids ending up in college are usually at the local state colleges and universities, not knowing the fuck they're going to do. And often are just doing it to get the shiny piece of paper. And look for the fastest and easiest route to that shiny piece of paper.
Thusly the art degrees.
So many students in it for art degrees.
