Why?

This lady. We just had the worse financial crises in modern U.S. history because companies were pushing mortgages that people couldn't pay. What happens when you start attaching large fines to students who haven't even started their careers, or young adults who are starting out and already owe six figures to start with?

I don't know how someone who cares more about allowing companies to gouge customers who require degrees to meet unnecessary company-mandated checklist job requirements (I still believe excessive job requirements / hiring practices - you don't need a bachelor's degree to be able to type on a computer - are probably a significant contributor to this student debt issue) gets hired to represent the needs and advancements of public education.

This lady has no clue.

Behind the Everyday

Randomly searched YouTube for videos that covered math concepts in a relatable way. Came up with the following below. The "Googling" videos actually seem to touch on a number of things being covered in the linear algebra and discrete math classes I'm taking. The equation in the "Maths Behind Music" video and the Lorenz curve in the "Mathematics and Social Justice" video appeared in my calculus class homework assignments.
