Higher education, by its very nature, must appeal to the instincts of the best and the brightest. Colleges and universities SHOULD be restrictive in admissions policies. It's no slam at any number of deserve and intelligent young adults to tell them they should attend a state school than a far more expensive private one. Nor is it a slam to tell them that some students are smarter than others. We have democratized higher education to the point where it is somehow a "right." It isn't.

Socialism? Reading your post is like looking at a virus through the lens of a microscope. You are comically misinformed and infected with propaganda.

What self-respecting parent would give their kid a credit card if they knew they were going to max it out and not be able to pay it back? Hopefully, no one. In fact, as a responsible parent you would probably teach your children the opposite habit--responsibility.

This paternal irresponsibility is what is occurring on a larger scale with the federal government and the student loan industry. President Obama has earned himself a failing grade in responsible parenting.

FICO released a new study that analyzed 10 million credit files to find trends within the student loan industry. The group concluded...
