i havent heard this. most state colleges/universities will take ANYBODY. Over 1 in 4 should NOT be there. the standards have been lowered to accommodate those coming out of highschools nowadays.

your premise is wrong. 50% of people who enter college graduate.

Anyone just about who wants to go to college can. Staying in might be hard if your IQ is under 110 or so, I suppose. (I’m not sure about what IQ you have to have to graduate from college)

A lot of people in the past didn’t apply to college. Today many more high schoolers are going to college in greater percentages than they did in the past.

I do not understand this question but I will answer per what I think that you are trying to say. The real question is why is the High School public education system so poor that 75% of students can not even get into college without taking at least some remidial classes. I started out in a community college where there was college students right out of High School who could not do simple math. I also met other students who had such poor language skills that they could not pass the entry level English classes.

Every state I have ever lived in I have heard the same song over and over that the public schools need more money to teach the students but as the cost per student increases the return on investment continues to fall. What we need to do is to find that the teacher union is a monopoly and distructive to the United States and start to hold our schools accountable for the money that we give them.
