Link to an opinion piece by Frank Donoghue that argues against the conclusions of a recent report from the Center for Law and Social Policy. This report concluded that since the number of high school graduates and new traditional-aged college students will decline in the next decade, the US economy needs more adults to start, and more importantly, complete college degrees. Donoghue disagrees that the economy is dependent on more college graduates and that everyone should be encouraged to attend college. He also opposes the idea because private sector colleges are better positioned to educate adults than public and private traditional colleges.
