Lib. ed. courses freshman year is a luxury we can't afford (take them senior year in high school) - begin major ASAP, graduate in 3 years.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

I get the concept of a well rounded liberal education but we need to be realistic. I had to take art & literature classes to meet credit requirements, yet I had no interest in art or lit (though I do love to read). Given how expensive college has become, it's a luxury we can no longer afford (that's what high school is for). Making college a 3 year process automatically decreases tuition by 25%.
