AM: "Please explain how it differs from education -- which is also something that everyone needs."We educate people through high school. That is a choice we made.We don't provide a 'college education' to everyone. A plumber doesn't need a college education. In fact, a plumber might have benefitted from a vocational high school, not an 'academic one'. Same for your auto repairman (oops, tech), the a/c guy, the pool guy, the plane mechanic, the stewardess on the plane, ...... "Are you suggesting that if people want their children educated they should plan to earn the money to buy it? "Top league fancy name college? you bet.....along with some financial assitance based upon need and ability of the kid....."And those who cannot earn enough money to pay it... what happens to them? Lifelong ignorance?"You ever hear of the military? Get college credits for serving..in some cases, get excellent vocational skills...from piloting to repair to computers to leadership skills. Or night school, or part time, or community college. Or scholarships. we really don't need a lot more history or English or lit majors...lib arts type degrees that really don't confer job skills. t.
