More for the college-is-in-trouble files

Here's yet another article about the current difficulties in higher education.

What I don't yet understand is, with the particular dynamic described, why aren't more students applying to technical and scientific degree programs? Is it just math anxiety? Or something deeper.

Given the state of public education in America today, fewer students are prepared for academia. I see the results of this phenomena in my classes each semester. The first few weeks of the new semester is spent bringing students up to speed on how to think, how to write, and how to make logical arguments. I think it is far more than simple math anxiety. I think it is an entire generation, unprepared for the rigors of higher education.
