"What the Top 1% of Earners Majored In"
"We got an interesting question from an academic adviser at a Texas university: could we tell what the top 1 percent of earners majored in?
The writer, sly dog, was probably trying to make a point, because he wrote from a biology department, and it turns out that biology majors make up nearly 7 percent of college graduates who live in households in the top 1 percent.
According to the Census Bureau's 2010 American Community Survey, the majors that give you the best chance of reaching the 1 percent are pre-med, economics, biochemistry, zoology and, yes, biology, in that order."
An interesting portrait of what professions are valued in this country, even a through-the-glass-darkly look at what our morals are.
The saddest part is that Education majors are nowhere on that list. Even Philosophy majors make the list, but not Education. Good thing I've got a history BS, I've still got a shot at the big money.
So their eyes are growing hazy 'Cause they wanna turn it on So their minds are soft and lazy, well Hey, hey, give 'em what they want
