    I agree, but I also believe that providing access to a higher education to as large a proportion of a country's population as wants it and can qualify for it, is one of the best investments in the future that a country can make.

    my organic teacher was from Pakistan, and he was pretty decent. i bothered him incessantly for help, and even leaned on classmates, which i hate to do. i wasn't used to working that hard to understand something. he saw how hard i was working, and gave me a better grade than i probably deserved. at the end of the semester, i breathed a sigh of relief and opted out of semester 2.

    the most difficult A i ever earned was graduate level immunology. a couple of us studied almost every night of the semester; taking the occasional break on a Saturday night and right after tests. i don't miss that one.

    How much money is this change actually going to cost you?

That's part of the American dream, and it is a good one at that. Allowing the hill to become steeper and steeper because they are expected to do the hard work only ensures that fewer and fewer individuals will be able to accomplish what previous generations could. Sooner or later you begin eliminating those who could do that much more by having the expense of post secondary education being too high.

    People really need to stop thinking higher education is the only way forward.
