What an utter joke contemporary schooling represents is revealed by the fact that, in Canada at least, federal bureaucrats are empowered to arbitrarily deny the existence even of citizens' university degrees (from the University of Alberta, in the case I am personally familiar with) in order to steer job competitions in a predetermined direction. In the eyes of these arrogant, protected "Lords of the Realm" neither you nor your attainments (unless these demonstrate flawless sycophancy) are of any significance whatsoever.
