I think there-in lies the problem. The general conception over here is that without a "college" education, there is no way to survive. I am certain the guy that pumps my septic tank makes more money than I do (as a business), and he has far less stress. Everyone is always happy to see him Smile | :)

So the system over there is self regulating to an extent. In the US, about the only thing you need to get into college is money. The grade inflation in our high schools (ages 14-18) is out of control and the rot has spread into the college system. So, in effect, the US does have somewhat of a "free" education system - free money that you'll probably never pay back, but there are no restrictions as to who gets it. As a result, you have people borrowing 100K for a degree that will never pay them back.
