    One thing the colleges could do is reverse the trend to add course requirements in diversity, international issues, etc. These often are functionally additional to real core courses. They may not deter students from graduating but add significantly to the cost and detract from the program if they displace other subjects.

    “Rather than trying to funnel more young people into four-year programs, we should be encouraging an array of educational options, with varying price tags, academic requirements, and certifications ”
    Such a common sense solution is a threat to the highly profitable education reform industry and will meet with much opposition from the usual hucksters.

    ” College is not for everyone. ”
    So simple. Yet, so darn true.
