With a few special exceptions, the more education an individual has the more money they will earn over the course of their lives. And most Americans realize that. So much so that they scrimp and save to put support their children – or themselves – through college. Even those who don’t feel that college is accessible to them realize post-secondary education and training is critical, so they go on to a trade or professional school. Despite our collective realization that education is the key to long-term financial stability, many Americans have very little faith in the nation’s college and university systems and believe that they function more like corporations and less like institutions there to serve and help develop our country’s future workers.
