Making college degrees easier to read from the Chronicle Blog

I don't believe that surveying industry to determine the types of courses a student should take to clarify a transcript's arcane notation is a solution to the problem. This proposal sounds like a one-size-fits all degree which may make it hard for people to transfer their skills into other related positions.

And just who will be surveyed to determine the necessary skills? What if you can't get them in your current school (i.e. no classroom management/student herding seminars, so you can't become a children's librarian?) this sounds like a bigger headache than a person learning how to articulate their skills on their resume or during an interview.
