If you get through the two years and associates it shows some dedication and often people are closer to figuring out what route they want to go to finish the undergrad.

If it is so "basic", then you waste people's time stating the obvious. Considering that nobody else here seems to agree with you, you failed to make your point.

Bear in mind that going to college and/or university in Europe to get a degree is nowhere near as universal as it is in the US. for a state, students need to reach a lot higher standard than in the US to attend. There is also a strong technical/vocational school system in many European countries that make a bachelors degree unnecessary for many positions that would require one in the US. School leavers in many of the western European countries have an educational level in excess of their US equivalents. For example, the English A-level exams, which are taken at 18 prior to leaving secondary school, are considerd to be the equivalent completing the freshman year at a US university.

Sorry if you didn't comprehend a concept so basic.
CC has been a stepping stone for the last 75+ years. So what's your point? For a 4 year degree, this would essentially mean a student comes out with say $30k in debt instead of $36k. Like I said - might as well make the plan a free 4 year degree.

And I've yet to meet someone with a good paying job that said the cost of CC came close to stopping them.

If you can't find a way to pay your way through CC, you'll likely come out just as confused as when you started.

Look around, there are others that get it. Sorry you lack basic comprehension skills.

I've met PLENTY of people who could have used the community college system to springboard into something other than a nowhere job. I think you should meet more people.

Let's be real. You can't spell "COMMUNIST" without "COMMUNITY" (College) and I think we all know where Comrade Obama is going with all of this. It's simply a ruse to train guards for the FEMA camps.

So why didn't they use the CC system? Was it the 2-3k/year it cost to attend?
