Joe Biggs was a butcher.His shop was in a village in one of the most beautiful parts of southern England.He worked in it for many years while his father was there.Then，when his father reached the age of 65，he stopped working in the shop.Joe was alone in it，so he had to work harder.Joe worked five and a half days a week.His shop shut at one o?clock on Thursday，and it was shut the whole of Sunday.Saturdays were the busiest days.
Joe had a big refrigerator in his shop，but he tried not to buy too much meat at a time.One Thursday a woman came into the shop at five minutes to one.“I'm sorry I'm very late，” she said，“but some people have just telephoned to say that they are going to come to dinner tonight，and I need some more meat.” Joe only had one piece of good meat in the shop.He had sold all the rest earlier in the day.He took the piece out and said to the woman.“This is ￡7.15.”“That piece is too small，” the woman answered.“Haven't you got anything bigger?” Joe went into the room behind his shop，opened the refrigerator，put the piece of meat into it，took it out again and shut the door of the refrigerator with a lot of noise.Then he brought the piece of meat back to the woman and said，“This piece is bigger and more expensive.It's ￡9.30.”“Good，” the woman answered with a smile.“Give me both of them，please.”

The case for college has been accepted without question for more than a generation.All high school graduates ought to go，because college will help them earn more money，become“better people”，and learn to be more responsible citizens than those who don't go.
But college has never been able to work its magic for everyone.And now that close to half our high school graduates are attending，those who don't fit the pattern are becoming more and more，and more obvious.College graduates are selling shoes and driving taxis;College students get in the way of each other's experiments and write false letters of recommendation(推薦)in the competition for admission to graduate school.Others find no interest in their studies，and drop out—often encouraged by college administrators(教導主任).
Some observers say the fault is with the young people themselves—they are spoiled and they are expecting too much.But that is a condemnation(譴責)of the students as a whole，and does not explain all campus unhappiness.Others blame the state of the world，and they are partly right.We've been told that young people have to go to college because our economy cannot take in an army of untrained eighteen year old.But disappointed graduates are learning that it can no longer take in an army of trained twenty year old，either.
Some adventuresome educators and campus watchers have openly begun to suggest that college may not be the best，the proper，the only place for every young person after the completion of high school.We may have been looking at all those surveys(調查)upside down，it seems，and thinking of the rosy glow of our own remembered college experiences.Perhaps college does not make people intelligent，ambitious，happy，liberal，or quick to learn things—maybe it is just the other way round，and intelligent，ambitious，happy，liberal，or quick people are only the ones who have been attracted to college in the first place.And perhaps all those successful college graduates would have been successful whether they had gone to college or not.This is heresy(異端邪說)to those of us who have been brought up to believe that if a little schooling is good，more has to be much better.But opposite evidence is beginning to mount up.
