Why Silicon Valley vs. Classical Education?

The own cult is created around the Silicon Valley. Google, Facebook, PayPal, SpaceX and the rest are titans of the technology world. There are launches, starts, developments, trends. And now another one: reducing the importance of academic education. Studies that the “Comparably” employment platform has conducted showed that even without a completed education, you can receive more than $ 100,000 in the technology sector. Among the positions are developers, IT managers, product managers, and a lot of other management positions.

If there is an opportunity to get a dream job without education and to be honest, these companies embody this image for people of technical interests, then why education is necessary? Let's look at the reasons for this trend.

Non-graduate Billionaires

In this question, the sociocultural context and the banal human factor are extremely important. There are Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and other cult representatives of these places and the technological word. Who are they? They are dissidents, who are not in line with the framework.


These super nerds personify the exact opposite of the generally accepted. Silicon Valley, where more than 5% of residents are millionaires, who are included in 1% of the richest people in the United States (the rest have only a couple of zeros less), transformed the conception of "rich people." Perpetual freshmen wearing T-shirts change the course of history. Their lifestyle and ideas are an eternal swim against the current. This is reflected in the perception of the system, in particular, higher education.

University Program Doesn’t Keep Pace with Tech Development

Even in the realities of Stanford, not all programs keep up with the flight of startupper’s fantasy in Silicon Valley. It is worth noting, however, that in the United States it is the universities that have developed infrastructure and all the necessary tools for research. Their contribution to technological progress is difficult to overestimate.


Nevertheless, innovative ideas are such ideas because they create revolutionary new products and form a different culture. Their creators want to surf the space, and not to prove the feasibility of the invention in the university laboratory.

Another problem is that no one can be sure that these skills and knowledge will not lose their relevance in a year. It is expected that students and employers have begun to doubt that academic programs correspond to real market needs.
