My Take on the Dawson College Shooting Study

What a news flash!  After nearly 1,000 Dawson College students were interviewed in a three year research project, that they concluded 30 per cent of respondents experienced some psychological disorder, such as post-traumatic stress or depression.   It took all this effort to come to a conclusion that any rational person could have told you in 5 seconds.   Anyone that is a part of a tragedy of that magnitude is going to have some effects as a result of it for the rest of their lives.

I have no problem with the findings or the desire to help those that were effected, but I do with the waste of money that universities keep spending on stupid research, and then say is ground breaking information.  Universities across this country keep moving up tuition fees for students and claiming poverty looking for government handouts.  But they continue to waste money doing useless things that have no bearing on society, because someone has an idea that they would like to look into whatever.

Get back to doing your core work, and that is preparing and training our young people to go forth and be the leaders of tomorrow.  Give them the skill sets to make our country a better place to live.

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more Dave. Did it take them a year to come up with this idea or was it the time required to file the paperwork for the research project application? It is certainly money that could have been better spent on students education. Good job Dave.
