    but I'm behind this comment 100%.  As a former university faculty member, I can attest to the fact that colleges are filled with students who are not certain why they are there and are unprepared to do college work.  They've been pushed into it because they, their counselors and their families are convinced they will get a better job when they get out.  Never mind that many who do get out are in deep debt and still cannot get a job.  And from the employer's side of the equation, they often have learned little.  "I will make more money when I get out." is hardly a motivator for true learning.

    We need to provide more support for K-12 and community and technical colleges.  And quit demeaning forms of education that that don't provide a "college" education or don't lead to a college degree.
