I don't agree with making college extremely cheap, but would you rather live in a country where everyone has college degrees or a country where the majority of the ppl only have high school educations?

College degrees wouldn't mean very much in a country in which all citizens possessed one.

Everyone having a College Degree would mean that an even greater percentage of incompetent morons would have degrees than already do. . .

.. .making a degree mean as much as the ability to wear clothes.

There are definitely too many people in college already

And many of them are there for literally no reason at all

To quote Judge Smails: "The world needs ditch diggers too."

We should adopt the German model - ID those suited for intellectual pursuits and those suited for skilled labor (a/c repair, car repair, etc.).

I don't know about limiting college. It would seem to me that having more educated people than less is a good thing.

I would rather see college be made more rigorous, or that is to say more competitive globally. The US bachelors degree doesnt compete well overall when compared to some European and Asian offerings. The difference becomes more profound when comparing some graduate degrees.

Agreed. Who will pick up my trash? Take my order and cook it at Mickey D's? etc. etc. Not everyone can go to college and it has to be that way. The dirty jobs still have to get done.

by making college overly affordable, college becomes obsolete.


Should admission to college be based upon money or intellect and ability?

Well, I certainly agree that people should learn how to spell.

I agree that too many people go to college with little chance of success, but I think your assumptions and criteria my be off. Frankly, I would rather bright kids, even though not quite at scholarship level, be admitted rather than some rich dumbass who takes up a space.

Great point. I also believe that everyone should have the opportunity given the right amount of merit.

Stating that some people shouldn't have the opportunity to attend college is moronic

Other than the fact that they're educated?

The righties only want the rich to go to school apparently. Since no one seems to care that rich kids have no problem getting a degree because their parent's can afford it. That's not a problem. But a low class kid going to college with the same high school grades as the rich kid, OUTRAGE!

The stupid is strong with the righties.

With the increase in education have you seen a decrease in the people willing to do these jobs?

And I don't mean willing as in people who are just lazy

Maybe general studies or some other bs degrees. Other than freshman classes the majority of the classes I took weren't easy. Morons want pass physics, statics, chemistry, finance, accounting, etc. etc. etc.

Glad you feel that way. I'd rather let the market decide whether or not those people get a job.

This is where we get to the argument where the libs think you had to go to college to be "intelligent." I can point out a lot of very successful people who never went to college. People need to stop attending universities they cannot afford. Y'all are acting like they do not offer scholarship money based on your merit's in high school. So you want to point out again that we only think rich people should go to college?

In today's job environment work experience is much more in demand than a college degree.

As if the market won't decide one way or the other?

Yeah because education is such a polarizing topic

If you are poor in America, truly poor, you have other issues then not being able to go to college.

I'll start feeling sorry for America's poor when our "poor" people aren't 300 pounds with chrome rims and cell phones. Real poor people are skinny, wear rags, and walk bare foot 3 miles to beg for pocket change on the corner.

Prove that he's done more drugs then most Americans. Hell George Bush was a drug addict and an alcoholic. I bet you would never say that about Bush. Let's be fair, oh I forgot you right wingers could careless about fairness. God is watching.
