Elementary, my dear Sen. Kerry

National Review Online on Sen. Kerry's "Service for College" initiative:

Contrary to popular belief, the evidence indicates that the cost of tuition prevents very few students from pursuing a college degree. The problem isn't that students can't afford college - it's that not enough students possess the academic qualifications necessary even to apply. This cannot be fixed through better financing for tuition: It requires reforming K-12 education.

Despite what some pols will have you believe, not everyone is destined for a college education. However, we must not skimp on primary and high schools.
