    Most kids in America would not qualify for a Western European university. Most American kids, as a matter of fact, wouldn't qualify for a Western European high school. And don't even think about an Asian school.

    If we want a different system - where only the best and brightest are selected for higher education - then let's have that discussion. The American system takes all comers, and makes them pay. How many do you think "the state" should pay for? The amount of funds available will determine the strictness of qualification. The majority of kids in college today would have to make other life plans. Which might be a good thing, but needs to be addressed.
