Have you read http://www.amazon.com/Strapped-Americas-30-Somethings-Cant-Ahead/dp/1400079977/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1360170859&sr=1-1&keywords=Strapped The issue they point to really digs in deep to the emerging nightmare of college debt. The trouble isn't just something that's coming for future generations of college students it's here and now, particularly among non-traditional students who are trying to break through some economic ceilings by seeking a college degree. The tentacles of the problem are many and far reaching. We have created a culture where a college degree is being used as a tool of exclusion for employment. People who are not really interested in being educated/expanded are filing into colleges and universities simply for having a job. They expect their schools to be vocational training, and treat the experience with a consumer mentality. In many instances the theories and missions of colleges and universities have helped create a culture of entitlement that has horrible consequences on a variety of levels. We are not developing a strong pool of skilled tradespeople because they have been convinced that trades are "less than" and we have mountains of students who are disinterested in scholarship. They are taking out loans and accessing government resources and demanding more services all at the same time. The effects are visible on every point of the continuum. Doctoral degrees are flooding the system at the top end, and BA degrees are being used like high school diplomas for "good job" eligibility. By the time it's all over everyone is buried in debt and few are satisfied with their careers. This cannot continue.
