How does college promote the American-dream?

It clearly does not. 40% of students drop out anyway,

since they can't handle it, or can't afford it. Companies 

only take the top 20% of graduates with the highest 

grades. So am I right to assume 80% of college-graduates 

never reach Middle-Class?

    The country was set up to give you life, liberty and the PERSUIT of happiness. Achieving happiness is what YOU make of it. If happiness was guaranteed colleges would give you degrees whether you deserved them or not, often like how too many high schools do.

    It depends on what you major in. If you have a four-year university degree in nursing or engineering, the unemployment rate is very low.

    Miguel, no matter how much you condemn the world is unfair it will continue to be unfair. 

    In order to be effective you work within the confines of your power.
