Free college makes sense, though, as an investment in upgrading our country's abilities. 

I mean, there has been a lot of discussion about a bunch of ppl that used to have jobs that don't now due to automation and moving them out of country.  One way to get ppl like that back into good paying jobs would be free secondary ed.  Then you have more ppl with the ability to earn more than $12/hr providing better lives for those ppl, more places where employers can take advantage of a higher educated source of labor, higher tax rev for the govt(local and fed), less drain on entitlements, etc.

Public ed was organized in our country to help ppl be better employees.  It seems like a logical next step would be public college ed given that the new factory job is not putting crap together, but rather keeping the robot that puts crap together running well.   :dunno:

Sure, that isn't as fist-pump-eff-yeah friendly, but it is logical.

If all college offered were useful degrees, you might have a point. But the proliferation of worthless "______ Studies" degrees invalidates your point.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

my college was free because I was a monster stud

Yeah, just get good grades. I had K-State, housing, and food paid for and had enough left to buy a 1993 Ford Ranger. :D

 :love:

To be fair, it was 1996 when I bought it.

Around '96 I was learning to drive stick on a '93 ranger

I think free trade school would be a better use of government funds.

I paid for school (well, daddy did), but it felt free compared to the alternative (Dartmouth tuition).

I was in National Honors Society, held a 3.8 GPA in HS, but scored a 17 on my ACT so I didn't get crap. I had baseball scholarships, but I wanted to be a cat.

I took the ACT in 7th grade, but out of respect for Wacky, I won't reveal whether I scored higher than him at that time.

You needed a 21 or something like a 3.0 GPA in a curriculum that meets minimum standards. It is very easy to get into any Kansas college, but I think KU did raise their standards a couple of years ago.

I think that should be one of the choices for sure.  However, I don't think you can say a welder, crane operator, or carpenter is a better investment than an engineer or doctor as far as the country goes.

MIR's obsession is weird. Anyways. It's 2/3. Above a 2.5 or 3 gpa, top 10% of your class, or a 21 or higher on your ACT. Get educated folks.

For the people who are screwed because the manufacturing jobs left town, trade jobs absolutely are a better investment.

Also, I was love drunk with my HS girlfriend, and all my boys were walking on at KU. So yes, I did check for shits and giggles

Lots of the more rural high schools are integrating more trade/vocational learning. Nearly all the school expansions I've seen lately are to accommodate this.
