Schools like Albany State, Valdosta State, Darton State etc. enroll such poorly qualified students they just serve as a big money pie for loan sharks. When I say poorly qualified I mean academically. They're not good students. Sorry, not everyone is created equal. Stop buying that lie. Students that should be going to technical school to earn a respectable living are instead being sold the crap that everyone has to go to college
Yes! Who wants to attend a college the size of a highschool? Students who enrolled into Albany State.

I don't know if it's really that simple to make such a scorched-earth decision like that about people who attend Albany State and the like. There are different levels and tiers of intellectual capability. You can't simply say "A is this and Z is that" but ignore everything else in between.

A person may not be lawyer material, but a person can be a legal researcher. A person may not be Doctor material, but that person can be a Physician Assistant or a Nurse.

And I don't think that it should be necessary to attend a Harvard, Yale, or even a University of Georgia-type of institution to be a legal researcher, Nurse, or even a Physician Assistant. That's just too much money to waste to educate people on those lower-tier occupations.

I think that in talking about education reform, great care should be taken to look at all the nuances of a situation and not make blanket statements.
