An idea worth spreading
Particularly with the current election, the cost of education and access to education continues to be an area of concern. As colleges advance their capabilities through technology, new curriculum, and expertise, costs are bound to continue to rise. Maybe the answer is not decreasing the cost, yet, decreasing the requirement of the average 120 credits needed to obtain a baccalaureate. Much of that requirement is allocated to electives. As our society becomes more diverse, fields of study are becoming more specific. In addition, high schools are offering courses once only offered in college, thereby, giving students a chance to explore studies before reaching college. This all points to reducing the number of electives which reduces the cost and time to achieve a degree, as well as, will encourage more people to pursue further education such as a graduate degree or 2nd degree. Continued education is what we need to strive for so this idea fits our current and future society.
