    And many such moms and dads (at least in the middle to lower economy class middle class) are supported to a great extent by the very social security that the ultra conservatives here seem to object so much to!!


    Are those same ultra conservatives then going to substitute their own hard earned money to do the same thing? Not on your life they will not!!

    college is great if you are going to be a doctor or lawyer, or something that requires specific knowledge, but face it…a good trade school or an apprenticeship (sp) can be as rewarding as most other things.

    That even a “minimum skills” requirement for many jobs, is at least a two-year degree or equivalent trade school education above high school, those without same are the ones unemployed, or at sub-minimum wage jobs.


    Two years of tuition free education makes economic sense based on returns over time as income, and taxes paid, increases.


    Allowing “financial institutions” to rip students off, does not make sense.

    Robert Landers I mean no offence but I just did not understand your comment with all that!!!! you feel strongly about something I am just to thick to understand it. As for fresh out of college Americans. The work landscape has been very bad for a long time 7 / 8 Years now, so a 22 to 25 year old entered school knowing full well it is tough out there and a BA degree really does not guarantee anything. After spending lord knows what to postpone entering the workforce surprise at our labor issues boarders on the absurd. Having exited high school in 1978 we faced a similar market. Trade Schools and business college were our way to higher pay and upward movement .

    Illinois state revenue is up 22% from 2009 to 2014, but over 200,000 fewer people are employed. The state is second in the nation in increased tax revenue in five years-(N. Dakota is #1 due to the oil boom)but the recession is still going on here. How did this happen? Big tax increases. And the state is still massively in debt, so…the Democrat state legislature wants another round of big tax increases.
