I would instead point to a changing culture where the work ethic barely exists. My present college students profess lofty career goals that would require postgraduate degrees yet they are no-shows in the classroom, adamantly refuse to study or come to class prepared and believe they should be pushed along because, frankly, that is what I believe their previous academic experiences were like. Scholarships often go unawarded but few want to 'bother' writing the required essay. The local newspaper in my semi-rural area is replete with articles citing employer complaints that they can't find employees willing to do the job.
