Good or Bad? Education and Economy

Foreigners Attending US Grad Schools Way Down: Wake Up, Xenophobes

A very interesting perspective.  I was talking with one of my vendors/friend about this very subject of schools and why so many of the students are foreign.  We both agree that part of the issue is these students work and study hard to achieve while many within our country spend more time playing games or receiving a "free ride".  These people do not have any incentive or drive to move ahead thinking they should be handed their education, and therefore their future jobs, on a silver platter. 

What thoughts do you have on this?  Has our system failed us again?  Refer to the Idiot's Bookstore and the book, Dumbing Down Our Kids.
