America really only needs a fraction of the college-educated people that it currently has. Given the tremendous cost of college today, it really isn't an economically viable approach for most.
Fortunately, we have a significant number of wealthy families that CAN afford to put their kids through school without financial hardship, and without burdening their graduating children with extraordinary debt.
It only makes sense to discontinue this wasteful expenditure in student-loans programs and such, and just let those in our country who can truly and easily afford the top academic institutions, be the ones that fill the roles that require such high educational requirements.
The vast amount of money that is currently squandered providing partial funding for college to those who genuinely have no business being there, or who can't afford the entire package to begin with, would be far better spent providing them with vocational training in some trade field, as an electrician, or plumber, or carpenter.
