Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They come out inadequately educated (functionally illiterate is probably a bit strong) because they were overwhelmed. Unrealistic goals don't help. Challenges are good; asking the impossible is not. If you set expectations a lot beyond an individual's limit, results will drop.

Giving everybody a college education is not a realistic goal. You need to divide those who can realistically go to college from those who cannot and school them in a different way.
