The Quality of College Education

In the 1940s only 5% of americans got a college degree.  Today over 27% get a degree and over 50% of americans have taken at least some college classes. We are nolonger working with just "the best and brightest."  For this reason the quality of college education has declined. (Not to say there aren't other reasons as well. The intrusion of business into education, the decline in government funding, etc.)

  1. Were colleges in general ever really working with the "best and brightest," or only those who had the good fortune to be born into a family that could afford tuition and the opportunity cost of spending four employable years out of the job market?
