    there are also plenty of cheap good quality colleges that one can attend. it takes some work.

    Id love to see how universal higher education "devalues" it.....
    it works the same way as anything that is produced in mass quantities. I have seen it happen with my own eyes.
    before 2000 you could get away with a 2 year degree in pretty much any technical field. you were golden if you had it. you could pretty much
    write your own ticket.

    after 2000 companies weren't taking 2 year degree's they wanted 4 year technical degree's. unless you had a ton of experience already.
    now companies are wanting master degree's in certain fields were a 4 year was just fine.

    why? degree's of separation. the market is flooded with 4 year degree's it no longer carries the weight that it did. you can still get by with one but you
    had better have something else on your resume to separate you from the other 10k people that have the same thing.

    Thanks for telling me whats there. Now how does that answer any of the questions I just asked?

    $10,000 a year isnt "cheap" for the majority of Americans.

    Yea.... I think a boat load of countries would beg to differ, and many of those countries are ahead of us either in technical skills, and world education rankings...

    most of those who are "poor" dropped out of HS. so how is spending more money on education they won't take advantage of a good thing?

    Thats not true. I believe the rate of HS dropouts who make up the nations poor is around 30-35%.... But still even if your claim is true, why shouldnt they be allowed to obtain or continue their education after dropping out for whatever reason?

    so how is spending more money on education they won't take advantage of a good thing?
    You think being offered free higher education is somehow going to make less people graduate highschool? Or what exactly is your argument?

    you think people who didn't care enough to get through HS are going to pursue higher education?

    is your solution to everything is to tax the rich more and hand out stuff to those who didn't care about what they were already given?

    this had nothing to do what you were responding to no where was minimum wage mentioned in the post.
    however millions of people go to school work for their degree and get better paying jobs.

    Thanks for telling me whats there. Now how does that answer any of the questions I just asked?
    I just did answer it.
    there is already plenty of opportunity for them to get a college education.

    $10,000 a year isnt "cheap" for the majority of Americans.
    with grants, scholarships, and loans it affordable. that is why those things exist.
    and they might actually have to work and go to school as well.

    the bigger question here is why can't you actually address what people are saying instead of making up random comments that have nothing to do with what they said at all?
