The author reflects on Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano's proposal to double college graduation rate by 2020 and provide financial support to students. He comments that there is no reason to think that the state need to double its college graduates, citing a U.S. Department of Education report which shows that many college graduates have jobs that do not require a degree. He also implies that low graduation rates can be attributed to public universities' ineffectiveness and not affordability.
