College should be a choice for some, depending on educational prowess, opportunity, and financial considerations. For those individuals, only a certain number of colleges are appropriate, and of those colleges, only a few degrees are worth choosing. College is neither a panacea nor a carte blanche. Better high schools, trade schools, and apprenticeship programs should take the place of overpriced and underperforming colleges and universities. Online education, particularly MOOCs (massive online open courses) should take the place of inefficient brick-and-mortar colleges, making education of all types less expensive and more accessible.
