College: still important, still too expensive
The trend continues. Americans believe that a college education is more and more necessary for success, but I also believe that it is economically increasingly out of reach. At least that is what comes out of this Public Agenda survey. The study also finds that Americans think that colleges are being run too much as businesses, with an eye toward profitability rather than maximizing education for as many students as possible. It seems that one year programs in Israel are not the only ones struggling with the economic tale wagging the educational dog.
