As a conservative, it is important to consider the practicality and cost of San Diego City College’s newly approved bachelor’s degree in cyberdefense and analysis. While the intention of this program may be to address the need for skilled workers in the tech field, it is important to question whether this is the most cost-effective and efficient solution.
The program was approved after a year of back-and-forth and objections from the CSU system, which originally claimed the program was duplicative of existing degrees offered at CSUs. This raises concerns about the potential for government waste and inefficiency, as well as the potential for overburdening taxpayers with the cost of this program.
Additionally, it is important to consider the potential impact on the job market and the unintended consequences that may arise from creating this new degree. For example, creating more graduates in a specific field may lead to increased competition for jobs and lower wages for graduates.
Furthermore, it is crucial to consider the feasibility of this goal and if the costs outweigh the benefits. While addressing the need for skilled workers in the tech field is important, it is important for officials to consider all options and weigh the potential impact on residents and businesses before moving forward with this program.
Overall, while the goal of providing access to above-livable-wage careers is commendable, it is important to consider the practicality and cost of this program, and weigh the potential impact on the job market and taxpayers before fully supporting this initiative.
