Taking the Right Path

We may be sending kids to college who are themselves better-suited to another path:

While incoming freshman do need a watchful eye on them to insure that they know what they are doing and that they are making decisions that will eventually cause them to incur a baccalaureate degree, treating them like babies will not empower them to develop the critical thinking skills and the independence they need to survive in the wider world. The State and our universities want to improve their graduation rates, but those rates would already be dramatically improved if universities admitted prospective students who are supposed to be in college rather than merely those who are being told that they should go to college.
