Do you believe that America should implement stricter quotas as to who should be admitted to


college? Many educators e.g. Dr. Charles Murray has stated that only those in the extreme upper percentile of their high school classes should ever be admitted to college, adding that those in the bottom percentile should elect other options.Because of the influx of mediocre students, college courses had to be dumbed down; this influx of students downgraded the quality of a college education making it equivalent to high school. If more rigorous standards are applied, only the qualified will attend college & there will be more validity in the value of a college education.

    This is only further proof of the need for higher standards. A measure of Common Sense should be included in the standards. Apparently these students had none, and should have never been admitted.

    You are right in many instances.There are people in college who SHOULDN'T be there in the first place.Their intelligence level isn't college level.Extremely intelligent people,not average,are the ones who should be attending college.It isn't for all.

    That which is free is undervalued. One need no more evidence of this than the deplorable conditions of public education, especially in urban areas.
