    Expect more students coming from other countries to fill the gap.

    This article must have hit a raw nerve for proc. "..posh playgrounds for an indolent leftist elite"? I wonder what he'd say about high school grads we always hear about whose home is mom's basement and whose occupation is video game tester? I guess in proc's world you can rip both sides at once, then jump on parents for "overindulgence".

    Re: "Students and families are becoming more skeptical of the value of a high-priced college education . . . ."

    High time!

    Hidebound "higher-ed" institutions have deteriorated into posh playgrounds for an indolent leftist elite, curiously committed to destroying the capitalist system that finances their 1% lifestyle. They cater, primarily to callow, uncurious, government-funded acolytes, often lured more by love of a drug-dimmed, radical-student lifestyle, than of learning. This leaves serious students on their own, to learn those skills necessary for success in the workplace somewhere else -- often, in the workplace.

    Sadly, real education occurs more as a by-product, than as a preparation for the workplace. And, it occurs more often in much lower-cost community colleges and for-profit institutions than in high-cost, tax-funded, "top-tier" universities.
