Determined,on many levels you are right. The quote you took from a prior post runs from some not needing more education to most college material needing the education. I ran the gamut without broadening out the ideas involved.That said we live in a world where not getting a college degree for whatever reasons, ie lack of money or aptitude, means the odds for needing welfare of any stripe goes up.I'd really like to see the numbers for unemployed v. employed, welfare v. higher salaries etc for less educated people v. more educated numbers. We all have some idea that unemployment for college grads is lower, but I wish we had some information on how to compare the numbers as to who ends up in prisons, perhaps who gets an education from a group of poorer folks and then ends up with how much more in income etc.....Right now such numbers and ideas probably exist somewhere in the govt. I guess we need better info on cost benefit analysis to really know if society benefits on the whole and from what percentage of folks in the population getting what amount of education. Another question becomes if we educate more people will GDP growth go up? And not in today's economic milieu, but after 2020.Dave
