As an aside, I believe that traditional higher education is not for everybody; vocational training beyond high school would better suit many as a form of higher education

I agree and I think that this will become increasingly the case as the cost of education skyrockets out of the reach of many families. I think that in the process the definition and scope of vocational training will change as additional skills are required to handle the rapid changes that we are facing in our society in general. Unfortunately it seems to me that we are heading more and more toward a European type class system

Let's create some "nuts & bolts" workers not ivory tower ideologs. Let the barons of capitalism have some input into higher education

Quality Career and Technology Education is the most under-utilized assest we have in America. The number of jobs that require four years of college was 20 percent in 1960. That figure has not changed today. Yet, the number of jobs that require specialized technical skills has skyrocketed to well over sixty percent. I can find out the percentages tommorrow, but many, many college graduates are having to go back to Technical Colleges to learn a skill because they can't get a job.
