Our children are grossly unprepared...
President Obama calls for more kids going to college. While education is a great thing, perhaps we should put more energy into replacing our K-12 system. With 1/3rd of our kids needing remedial work when they ge tot college, no sense pushing more into higher education.
The truly sad part is that over half the kids in college needing at least one remedial class wind up never getting a degree....so they have the worst of both worlds: lots of student loan debt to be paid off with high school level wages.
