Thank you for speaking reality. I am in my 50s and when I was in school I was told there was nothing I couldn't do IF I wanted to. My mother received a PhD in Biology in the 1950s. No one told her she couldn't become a scientist. But she had to work for it. I went back to school post Bac to get some more non-profit education (I was already a CPA and wanted to volunteer). The young students were totally government grown plants, wanting loans, grants, benefits. Nothing like when I was in college in the 1970s working full time, going to school full time living in squalor because I knew if I worked hard I could succeed. Student housing has granite countertops and fitness rooms and media centers now. It's a weak generation.
