According to the Alliance for Excellent Education (why do I imagine Bill & Ted doing their ads?) two year institutions spend $1.5 billion each year on remedial education for incoming students. Okay, and...? Isn't that the point of community colleges? Am I weird for having thought that some people go to community college because they have to get up to speed to go on to university? I mean, sure there are problems with the High Schools. Don't get me wrong. I see that every year. But don't a lot of people go to community college who just got their GED? Or who have been out of school for ten years? What's the problem with developing the skills of the work force, especially considering that they pay tuition anyway?
