What you really are saying here is that everyone owes the young a free college education, and with that, I'd have to disagree.
Everything becomes perceived as worthless when it's given away for free (or perceived as such). That includes a college education.
I'd bolster community colleges, make sure their credits transfer to other schools seamlessly, and other schools can't refuse them, as community colleges can, and do, provide quality education opportunities at a better price point than say, the ivy league colleges. The market can do the rest of the heavy lifting on it's own.

As such, they want to help that upper tenth as much as possible in the belief that if the upper tenth is in good shape - then the rest will fall into place.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

BOTH parties are bad......so criticizing just 1 of them is not being honest.
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
