"...state budget cuts have reduced resources at private and public universities, rendering them unable to keep up with the influx..."
We have no problem keeping up with the influx, we DO have a problem finding students who can read, write, and compute well enough to survive the rigors of college-level academic standards. Check the ACT/SAT scores in your state and compare them to the number of 4.0 GPAs and Honors awards handed out by your secondary ed. institutions. The accountability standards required for elementary institutions are nonexistent at the jr. high and high school level. Politics are rife in the hiring and firing of staff and faculty, athletics rule, and parents are not getting complete information OR asking questions. As long as Johnny or Sally brings home an "A" they are content until they can't get into college (or have to repeat high school level coursework in college), then parents (or the taxpayers - i.e. Federal Pell Grant) pay (or let Johnny or Sally take out loans) tuition rates that are triple or quadruple what is necessary. This of course, guarantees more "A's" for Johnny and Sally. Private institutions understand perfectly that they must deliver the product the customer demands or they won't be in business very long.

under control we are totally screwed
So thriving industries is yoga no real job potential,
Hot sauces made already at manufacturing facilities little jobs to offer,
Solar panels mostly made in china with no real job growth in the usa. Ever buy solar stock?
Overcharging private colleges not offering employment.

[BRIEFING.COM] Equity indices extended this week's losses with a broad-based retreat. The S&P 500 fell 0.6% to end the week lower by 1.1%, while the Russell 2000 (-1.1%) finished with a 0.9% decline since last Friday.
Staying true to the theme observed throughout the week, the energy sector (-1.5%) tumbled out of the gate, thus dragging the broader market down with it. Once again, dollar strength and crude oil weakness contributed to sector's underperformance, but the ... More
