Do people use Education as an excuse; they are too lazy to write a better job ad, understand the job they are recruiting for; reduce the number of resumes they have to look at?

What is more important, sheepskin or proven abilities and accomplishments? Hands on Skills and knowledge or something a person learned 20 Years ago?

Recently the EEO published the following regarding Education.. maybe it is time for Managers to really take a look at some of their requirements.........

"Educational requirements obviously may be important for certain jobs. For example, graduation from medical school is required to practice medicine.

However, employers often impose educational requirements out of their own sense of desirable qualifications. Such requirements may run afoul of Title VII if they have a disparate impact and exceed what is needed to perform the job.
