A question I hear a lot from young entrepreneurs is whether a university degree is important to startup success, or just a distraction in achieving their purpose in the world. They are quick to point out that many of today’s top entrepreneurs, including Evan Williams (Twitter), Bill Gates (Microsoft), and Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), dropped out of school to get on with their dreams.

I certainly agree that you won’t learn all you need in school to run an innovative and successful startup. But I don’t believe that

Haisley Elementary student Samir Beal, 7, shows off a book she read for a remote learning class at Peace Neighborhood Center, 1111 N. Maple Rd. in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020.

With no one willing to provide daycare for that many children during a pandemic, Marshall became her children’s daycare provider and learning facilitator as Ann Arbor Public Schools began the year with remote learning last week.

The one glimmer of hope for Marshall during this time has been the support services she’s received from Peace Neighborhood Center, which is providing critical in-person support for children whose parents might have

Nearly 90% of Hourly Workers Say Household Will Lose Income Due to Virtual Learning

Coronavirus concerns have prompted school districts across the U.S. to forgo in-person classes in favor of virtual learning, and hourly workers expect to take an economic hit as a result.

Nearly 90% of hourly workers believe they’ll lose income this fall if their children have to be taught at home, according to a survey by Branch, which offers digital wallets for workers.

While entire households would feel burdened, women may bear the brunt of its impact.

Virtual learning likely to be the norm

More than three-fourths of hourly workers (76.6%) said their children will engage in some form of remote learning this fall:

  • 47.2% said their children will learn remotely full time

  • 29.4% said their children will participate in a combination of remote learning and in-person instruction

MBA students aren’t all that enthused about the shift to remote instruction, particularly in the absence of tuition discounts

While business schools have been singing the praises of their shift to hybrid learning during the pandemic, MBA students generally aren’t buying it. A new extensive survey of current students shows that roughly half believe that what they are now getting in MBA programs is not worth the cost.

That belief is especially true at the highest-ranked, most expensive MBA programs. At schools where tuition and fees exceed $70,000 a year, 54.4% of the MBA candidates expressed buyer’s remorse, according to the survey by Bloomberg Businessweek published today (Sept. 16). Students were asked whether they agreed the cost of their education was worth it even after the changes required by the pandemic. In MBA programs where the costs were above $70,000, 28.5% “completely disagree” that their education is worth the cost,

(Bloomberg Businessweek) — The coronavirus pandemic led to an extraordinary and almost overnight shift to online learning at MBA programs. Because of the overwhelming impact on business school education, this year Bloomberg Businessweek chose not to rank MBA programs. Instead, we surveyed 3,532 first- and second-year students from 95 schools around the world to understand what was working in the now-online programs—and where students felt shortchanged.

Half of all students would be willing to see at least 20% of their coursework go online in exchange for some level of tuition discount. Students at more expensive schools were less likely to say that their online education was worth the tuition.

The survey, conducted from May to early August, included top-ranked schools like Stanford, Dartmouth, Harvard, IMD, Insead, and Ceibs—and a full range of schools from the Businessweek 2019-20 MBA ranking. Since this isn’t a ranking, and the pandemic hit
