    I have read quite a few articles where American Education is said to be far behind the general education of the rest of the civilized first world. This seems to be particularily true when our gneral education system is compared to that of the Asian countries. To me at least, this seems to be a very sad state of affairs!


    However, this does not seem to be the case with our higher educational system. Especially as many other countries seem very willing to send their best students to our colleges and universities. At least these Asian and other countries do not appear to be so very upset with taxing their own people to make this happen. After all, they (seemingly unlike us) are willing ot admit that a better higher educated young people is a very great asset in toady’s technological markets!


    Why should our own people so object to doing the same thing for our own citizens? And then also reap the eventual benifits of a more highly educated (especially in the sciences) work force? I note where California already seems to be more aware of this than most of the other states. In fact, the University of California is one of the finest such institutions in not only the USA, but even the rest of the world. Heck, our private institutions of scientific learning such as Stanford, and especially the California Insitute of Technology are also amoung the finest institutes of such higher learning in the entire world. Why would Silicon Valley be located so very close to Stanford University otherwise?


    Now, what is also needed is an equal emphasis upon the kindergarden to 12th grades. Education IS the key to the future for most of our middle class citizenry here in the good old USA, as well as the rest of the world for that matter also!!

    They saved their money and gave you a worthless Xeroxed diploma.
    I guess it not completely worthless. You are getting a lot of use out of it as a placemat for your paper plates and plastic ware.

    why are americans afraid of learning? Many community colleges have classes that very useful . Basic cooking classes(how many of us know how to use a knife the correct way), programming classes(cheaper than unis where unis are stuck in the 1970s), dance classes(so, we won’t look like live wire on the dance floor), computer classes(so, we know how to use a computer other than email and surfing the web).

    Democracy can only succeed with intelligent voters.

    We do have good universities but it is getting to the point where the middle class can’t afford them. The foreign students come from wealth and privilege and pay even higher rates, that is why there is so many in our universities. It’s all about money. The universities need to step up and fix their excesses so they become affordable again.

    The average college graduate pays about $5800 more a year in federal taxes than the average high school graduate. Over 30 years, that totals about $172,000. If that’s divided by the 4 years it takes to get a college education, the government would break even if it paid every student $42,000 a year to attend school.This doesn’t even consider that with the degree, the person is less likely to ever need unemployment or welfare, that more students would complete high school if they could see a clear way to a really good job, and that they would be enriching the Social Security and Medicare funds. They would also be paying a larger amount in all other types of taxes. And they would be buying more products which would boost the economy, and put more people to work at jobs that require all different levels of education.The best investment we could make to keep America strong is to not just forgive all student loans but to make all higher education, as long as the student is making decent grades, totally free, and increase the number of schools and teachers to make room for all who can profit from the education.We don’t, even at a time of high unemployment, have so much a lack of jobs as we have a lack of people who have the skills to perform the jobs that are available- in other words, a lack of education.

    All of you people seem to forget one very important fact; universities and collages are in the business of education. If students or their parents are not paying, the money has to come somewhere else. Professors need to paid just as the janitors. Free education is nothing but a dream, it is paid with taxes. If that is kept we will end up like Argentina, where a degree that usually takes four years to complete will take ten years. At the end we will have nothing but professional students.

    Frankly, its become a racket. And that’s a very long dissertation I’m not really inclined to write today.

    Yes—two free years of underwater basket weaving courses will do wonders for America and its economy. How about bringing back the jobs that both parties allowed to go overseas in the last three decades?
