Jeremy Boreing, co-founder of The Daily Wire, doesn’t have a college degree. Neither do Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, or a host of other innovators who have shaped our contemporary world. Which begs an important question: Is a college degree really necessary for success?

Maybe the dumbest thing you can do is to go to the place that’s supposed to make you smart. That would be…college.
Now, perhaps I’m biased. I don’t have a college degree-although I employ a lot of people who do, and from some of the most prestigious universities in the country.
I made a conscious choice. I had clear career ambitions and I didn’t see how a college degree was going to get me there. In retrospect, I’m confident I made the right decision.
I’m the co-founder and co-CEO of a company called The Daily Wire. We publish news and commentary from a conservative point of view. We have well over 100 employees and an audience which numbers in the millions every single day.
Now, I don’t have a problem if you go to college. It’s a free country. Do what you want. But the idea that somehow college is the great pathway to success and fulfillment-that I don’t buy.
The left takes a different view. They are obsessed with higher education. To them, it’s a human right. And they want it to be free-which just means paid for by people like me-for anyone who’s eighteen and can breathe.
That makes perfect sense from their point of view. One, the idea is a big winner among young people, a critical voting bloc. Who doesn’t want something for nothing-especially something that costs more than a Ferrari?
And two, colleges exist to do one thing: create conformity of thought. And since college professors and administrators overwhelmingly lean left, it’s a pretty good bet most of their students will as well.
But I’m being unfair, you say.
After all, we live in a knowledge-based world. And America isn’t making the grade. Don’t you know we rank 13th in the world in reading, 18th in science literacy, and a pitiful 37th in math? To which I say, “so what?”
It wasn’t Singapore that split the atom, or Estonia that mapped the human genome. America is #1 in Nobel Prizes awarded, #1 in scientific citations issued, #1 in popular entertainment, and #1 in technological advancement.
In short, America creates almost everything. Even what other countries manufacture was probably invented by an American. Which is why we’re also the #1 economy in the world-by far.
And who made this possible?
Well, here are the names of just a few of the individuals who pretty much invented the modern world: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Michael Dell, and Larry Ellison.
None of them has a college degree.
Many of the CEOs who run the companies they created do have college degrees. But the founders do not. What they do have are things colleges can’t teach you: curiosity, ambition, and a willingness to fail. Those qualities almost guarantee success. A college diploma doesn’t.
Want to build an airplane? Engineers educated in aerodynamics are handy to have on your team. Want to invent the airplane? Well, you’re better off finding a couple of restless bicycle repairmen. That’s what the Wright brothers were.
It’s not that colleges aren’t teaching; it’s that too often they’re teaching the wrong things. Or they’re teaching right things the wrong way.
Tech-entrepreneur David Gelernter says, “The thing I don’t look for in a developer is a degree in computer science…” Quite a statement from a man who teaches computer science at Yale.
Tech billionaire and co-founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel, actually pays people not to go college.
Thiel and Gelernter understand that colleges are factories, and like all factories, they want to produce a consistent product. That means producing people who all think alike.

TL;DR Don't go to college if the job you want to do doesn't require a degree. Like, no sh*t, if you're going to use some cushy investment money to start a conservative-funded website, no education needed. I wonder if this guy knows that most people don't have such opportunities, though.

I see my college degrees as a key. It is designed to unlock doors that I cannot open. Of course you do not need a key for an open door or a career opportunity presented before you go to college. Also, the key won’t unlock the door by itself. You have to use the key to unlock the door and you have to step through the door, the key won’t carry you. I work a full-time job, part-time job, watch kids while my wife works full-time, and I am in school online. I’ve got a bachelor’s in business and working on a Masters of Organizational Leadership. It’s my hope having these keys will open doors, even door I have yet to encounter.

I usually like your videos but on this I have to disagree completely. OK, I‘m German, so my point of view may differ from the states. But here in Germany a proper degree is almost everything when it comes to being successful at work. The higher the education the better. You get jobs easier, you get more pay, and you get jobs at higher positions. For many companies a university’s degree is a must have to even have a chance of employment. Without it they won’t even give you a chance to explain yourself. This matters also for entrepreneurs because you have to start somewhere. And that is probably a regular daytime job as an employee and not as an entrepreneur with the young age of 19. So at least in Germany all my experience and all the studies Tell the exact opposite: the higher the education the better. Especially for joe average.

Is anyone talking about the CSU and UC systems being sued due to price gouging students during Covid-19? CSUDH in particular is one school that continued to charge full tuition throughout 2020 for services and on-campus instruction not received. Not to mention they put additional requirements and more fees in place for graduating students knowing that students are unable to meet requirements from the impact of Covid-19 to fulfill those very requirements. This is happening all over California and the Nation. Here's a link for the story: And Links for Pending Cases due to Covid:

I do agree with this view, BUT what can one do when a college degree is MANDATORY to apply to jobs? Particularly in Europe, we can’t even apply to play as a musician in an Italian orchestra without having a degree... do you really think a degree makes you a better musician? However, without it we just can’t access the work opportunities that are essential for us to grow.

While I agree with some of what you say, we still need to get more youth involved/interested in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. Too many of the engineers and scientists we rely on are from countries that are hostile to America and it's interests and have used their positions to covertly send schematics and information about our latest (and classified) technological advances back to their home countries.

Even in today's society, yep, college still holds validity in greater success with life. But then again there are two avenues for success, 1. trade schools for jobs that need skilled workers in manual labor jobs or public service, 2. college and universities for highly technical and managerial positions. In the end both pay the same, but a college and university education can send one soaring to even greater financial heights with motivation and connections.

But college does open up a lot of high ranking opportunities? I mean you can get a job without one, but it's not gonna be as easy, despite the lackluster anecdotal evidence in the comments. A lot of people need it, and it gives people a chance who wouldn't otherwise have one. And no, America doesn't create everything, we create a lot, but saying everything is a little bit too nationalistic. Also using Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates are 1 in a million examples, not exactly good idea.

As a successful person who didn't go to college, this is a terrible video with a terrible message. People aren't going to college because it's so expensive. Saying "don't go to college then" doesn't solve that. Should we start telling kids to stop going to public school? No, because the education is free and valuable. There is nothing wrong with a cheaper or free education because an education is still powerful. Instead, people don't go and do nothing about it or find cheaper or free education elsewhere. If we had a low barrier of entry for college we would have a more educated population as more people are willing to get educated, plain and simple. And stop talking about people who made success out of college. 1. Some still went, regardles if they finished, they probably still learned something that's useful. 2. There are plenty of successful people with a college degree, but they don't count, do they?

I mean...not everyone has the stuff to be an innovator. Putting this vid out there for tons of people to see would help maybe two or three lucky/gifted people, but everyone else who takes the advice of "don't go to college lol" will likely be doomed to a boring and unfulfilling life, since all the successful people say college is useless, but also don't like employing anyone who hasn't gone. And saying that Gates and Jobs or whoever never went to college really doesn't matter. That says yes, being successful without college COULD happen. But you either have to have extreme lottery winning ticket luck or already be a prodigy in your department by the age of 12. Sure, nothing is guaranteed with a college degree either, but the chances of being more successful and good looking to employers are probably a lot higher with that than trying to be the next big CEO of a company. Anyways, thanks for making me even more uneasy about attending college! The world usually likes to prove me wrong so it'll probably not be worth it for me anyways, but wish me luck I guess.

I think you just answered your own question. Would you hire a schmuck off the street? No. College gives you a leg up on someone who either could not afford or couldn’t manage college. Sure they might not be innovators. But how many non-college graduates go on to become extremely successful? Not many. There are a few who are uber rich; they are the minuscule exception to the rule. And yes, you are biased. You found success because you found a niche. You found a market that was profitable and you didn’t need a degree. Ok great. Many other people don’t have the same ability.

All I know is that most "good" men only marry women who have at least a Bachelors Degree. They love throwing that into conversations. "She's Not only beautiful, but also very smart!" All of my female friends who married successful men have 1 or 3 degrees. No, they didn't meet their partners at the universities they attended. Neither of them are using their degrees as they are stay at home moms. Also your parents would be very proud and love to tell the whole world that you are well educated. It might NOT get you your dream job, but it makes your parents proud and gets you a better mate and admiration from friends. That's how society works!

ahmedabdul319 I absolutely agree with you! Despite saying that he‘s not biased, he provides an extremely biased and US-centric point of view. Like you said, having a degree will not make you successful per se, but provides a stepping stone for a lot of careers, though you obviously have to put it in some effort. Apart from that, a lot of inventions rely upon scientific research which definitely requires a degree, or to be more, specific, *an education*. Note that he also extends his argument to the poor reading, math and science skills of students in the US, thus indirectly arguing that education is not important in general. This video is just a poor attempt at getting people to stay away from education so they can‘t think critically on their own.

This is a very deceiving video. I agree that college degree is not for everyone but I think people still need to consider at minimum two major variables. 1st What profession do you want to get into? Engineering, Doctor, Dentist, Lawyer, STEM, ETC? If your profession REQUIRES a degree, meaning you can’t get a job unless you have a degree, then you better go to college and get a degree. 2nd What kind of Person are you? Are you the kind of person who is motivated and will consistently improve throughout your life and are willing to learn on your own, without someone holding your hand? If you are the kind of person who is lazy and will not “self-teach” yourself, then you should consider going to college. For many people, the only “education” they ever get is while they are in college. The moment college is over, the learning stops. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Z, Michael Dell, Etc, are all naturally curious and consistently learn on their own. Bill Gates publicly publishes a reading list of books he recommends that people read. If you are never going to pick up a book or learn on your own somehow (I don’t mean PragerU), then consider going to college. I’ve meet people who are very successful and don’t have a college degree and from my experience they all have one thing in common and that is that they are always constantly learning. Their schedule does not consist of coming home and watching TV all afternoon. Just FYI, I graduated from college and I agree that many professions don’t require a degree. These simplistic videos bother me because they don’t teach people how to problem solve and look at both perspectives. Finally, please don’t rely solely on PragerU videos to get educated, otherwise you will be misled.

This narrative assumes everyone has creative personality and will invent a technological advancement .

For instance many people going into the medical field need higher education. Not all men are interested in engineering and invention.

I have several complaints with the arguments made in this video... If college streamlines your students getting rid of them isn't the right way to go - Reform colleges and improve diversity of thought! Besides If you're not entirely sure what you want to work as later on a college degree in a paying field is a better investment than staying low paid and uneducated until it's to late to change! And saying that America had great innovations - and still has - doesn't mean it doesn't need or needs less higher education anymore! Yes, ery few very bright people have made these inventions but this video is targeted ad a casual audience, so saying "nah we're fine" is the first step to lose the lead... Besides I'm not too sure whether America still has the strongest economie.. and by what standard? (Per person? all in all?) - feel free to enlighten me there. THIS video is one of the few on PragerU I can't agree with at all.. while the statement that college doesn't mean success definitely is true, most of the other statements are just wrong arguments behind a maybe decent idea..

The real truth is college-educated employees file grievances and lawsuits against their employers. That's why employers don't hire them because they're afraid of ending up in court.

I don't regret my degree. Four years of college taught me discipline and taught me how to think, and I think it also stirred my thirst for knowledge that later bloomed at age 30. I would not have gained any of this from graduating highschool and immediately getting employment. The only thing I would change is going into the military with college on the GI Bill. I would have made more money. I got saved in college and, for that reason, I spurned the humanist, evolutionary indoctrination of the late 80s

American universities are committing FRAUD and should be held accountable. Irrefutable incontrovertible proof: AOC and Brown Unversity.
