I concluded much the same thing about the California community college
system when I worked there. I enjoy the fact that you can take a
welding course, but the academic courses aren't worth the money
invested. Instead of just dumping thousands of bucks per year for each
enrollee (most of whom have never taken an SAT or submitted a
transcript) into the hands of a bureaucracy, it would be better just to
pay their way to a real college with academic standards.
