I was about to say the exact same thing.

Mead mentions a national testing standard as a way to drive down higher education costs. That's something I've also said in the past. I wonder why this doesn't get more support? It's difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
The mixing of populations lowers the cost of being unusual.
