Thats a little simplistic I think.
There may be more kids going to College now than say seven years ago but back then none of these programs were running around. And the quality of where kids are going needs to be questioned. Do we have more kids going to D1 or D2 colleges now than 10 years ago?
LC probably has numbers at his finger tips.
The harder questions are, and I could not even begin to answer them:
- are these kids paying too much to get to the level of College they are getting to?
- are these kids paying too much rather than focusing on being in a quality Association program, ie, would they have got their anyway by another pathway
- is the College outcome even good for them or does it validate the program just to get the kid to "a" college?
Lots and lots of Aussie kids have got to College without a program like this, at all levels.
