from Houston Chronicle,

College enrollment dramatically dropped in 2021 for the second year in a row, particularly among young men, a result triggered not only by the COVID-19 pandemic but a more worrisome trend.

The shrinking proportion of young Americans participating in higher education threatens the nation’s economic competitiveness and reflects the nation’s political divide. Partisans are making everything we say, do, think, and believe political talismans by which to judge others.

This culture war, though, is hurting our children.
