If he's so smart (6 degrees from MIT and 1 from Harvard), why does he make simple baby mistakes all the time in videos?
That's so fucking retarded and pointless. He's just taking up younger students' spots in the programmes for his own ego.
He could've done PhD research in any of those directly after his first degree. There's no need to keep getting degrees in the baby concepts of a field when you're already recognised as being competant enough to obtian it.
Lol. He worked in a hedge fund before starting khan academy, which is now a huge company. I think his first degree was mathematics and he took the othersame (excluding the MBA) to be more capable of teaching other subjects.
I'm the only one that mentions PhD ITT qoute me directly faggot, and I know you can generally get into any STEM programme if you have a SEM bachelors.
My point is it's actually something productive to do a PhD (which involves a lot of self study and remedial coursework). You can study undergrad and masters coursework on your own, you don't need extra baby qualifications unless you're an egotistical faggot who's trying to impress plebs.
What the fuck did they hit the financial lottery on inheritance or something or do places just keep dolling out scholarships to them? Or do they keep doing different PhDs and somehow keep getting funded?
It's funny, the smartest lecturers I've had always make the most simple mistakes. That seems to hold true with smart people in general. They get so caught up in the big picture that they forget little details.
I believe he didn't actually do those degrees. You can be awarded honorary degrees here by universities or some shit. Same reason why the wonderful dr Ben Carson has like 81 degrees or some shit.
If he did actually take the time to do those degrees then you are right. He should have just done a PhD
Here's a list of all 29 degrees Nicholson has earned in the past 49 years:
Bachelor of Religious Education (B.R.E.), William Tyndale College, 1963. Major: General Bible.
Master of Theology (Th.M.), Dallas Theological Seminary, 1967. Major: Systematic Theology.
Master of Arts (M.A.), Eastern Michigan University, 1969. Major: Classroom Teaching.
I think everyone should have access to that education, but not everyone should be almost automatically awarded a degree at the end.
The responsibility would lie in making sure as many people as possible get a degree because they deserve it and have been given the tools to get it.
