I question higher education nowadays. I support: all students should attend a junior college for two years prior to enterning a major college. Selecting a major and sticking with it is very important. Saves time and money for all. only those with SAT scores 1300 should be allow to go to a four college first.

I think all these higher education schools and colleges are a waste of funds and resourses.
You can get the same, or even better education nowadays through on-line like the Internet.

Here I am again posting from Malta.
But contrary to MaltaMon's claims, I'm not posting anything about molesting children or nude swimming.

I think that it's good and worth the money spent. The only thing is that parents should listen to what their children really want to study. A lot of parents simply make this decision themselves and that's not right.
In general higher education is a must to become an educated person. Besides it is important for socialization.
