    in every respect.

    My brother also teaches - college humanities - and is in tears at the general illiteracy (and lack of interest in learning) of his typical post high school students.

    My wife's greatest joys are with the 'non-traditional' students in her program - older, second/new career, international/ESL etc. She finds the level of motivation, critical thinking skills, etc. to be quite high in this group.

    And yeah, if we think the nursing shortage is bad, the nursing faculty shortage is worse. Fat chance that FratBoy and his gang will even consider doing anything there...
