Corporations depend on a steady stream of college educated kids to keep their business model operating. The beautiful thing for them is that the cost of the degrees was free for them. Corporations don't care if you come to work for them carrying a heavy load of college loans either- and $50,000 to $100,000 is not unusual these days. College tuition is very reasonable in California, but not in most states. Society needs to change the education model and it's cost structure, but then Colleges are really businesses, too. They don't like anybody messing with their profit structure and possibly laying off some tenured professors. Supply side econmics 101 does not govern the decisons of college trustees right now.
It occurred to me that the big financial mess the USA is in right now was orchestrated by professionals who had advanced university degrees and college educated politicians failed to rein them in a few years ago when they had the chance. The working man who did not go to college will pay for their greedy lapse in judgement.. Why not admit that we are just like China?- they privatize the profits and socialize the losses upon the backs of the peasants. I'm done ranting.
