Fascinating story on the CNN money page about the fate of this year's college grads:
... [A] whopping 85% of college seniors planned to move back home with their parents after graduation last May, according to a poll by Twentysomething Inc., a marketing and research firm based in Philadelphia. That rate has steadily risen from 67% in 2006.

Read all of that here.
And then to a law prof's blog here for some interesting comments on that disheartening stat, including, "85% of college students learn that four years studying 'american diatribes in adobe huts' has little employment value."
American education from K to PhD needs a serious reconsideration. I see today in the Vicad that the nebulous 'they' appear to be pushing for college educations for such as Down Syndrome kids. If a Down Syndromer can do it, it's not anything approaching a college education, and it's a cheat to call it that and a cheat on the Downers and their parents to make them believe in it.
