I have never understood why I (or anyone) should be forced to pay money to take courses that do not matter in whatever field you are taking. (for example, let's say you have to take a polysci course so you can write computer code for a living).
Wouldn't it make more sense (although obviously it would bring in less money) to charge people for courses that A. they want to take, B. are needed for their field?
Wouldn't more people be up for getting a degree if it took 1/2 the time because they didn't have to take 'unneeded courses'?
Wouldn't it be easier for those who don't have $$, since they wouldn't be paying for something they don't want?
What are your thoughts on this?
I look at it this way, if I go to McD's and order a big mac, they don't also make me take and pay for a double cheeseburger just because they want to make more $$.

No, I like the way it is set up. It makes you a well rounded person. I would have never taken math, psychology, or biology had it not of been required. I did take those courses and I am thankful now, because I learned a lot of things that I did not know and I learned how to study a different way since those classes were a bit difficult for me. With your core classes or Associate degree that is the point of those classes. It is not to make more money but rather open your mind to new things. Once you begin your classes towards your Bachelor's then you will be able to take the classes that matter more toward your degree and your career.

Do you know that you can get an education without going to school?
