I have been a part time instructor at the community college level for over 20 years. As Dr. Sowell so ably states, I have often wondered what happens to a freshman student that fails most of the first year courses because he/she is unprepared. (High school graduation and high school education are 2 different things.) Most of the time they are put on scholastic probation and are gone the next semester. All of this because of 'social engineering' and a perfect example of an education 'Mismatch'.
