[20點] 請高手簡化一篇英文文章

(越短越好,只要不失其大意即可,為了簡化方便,我附上我的翻譯,謝謝!)

Universities are unable to restore the standards they used to require of students for fear of seeing too many of their students drop out.

因為害怕太多的學生輟學,所以大學無法恢復以往的標準來要求他們的學生。

University teachers have had to lower their requirements-sometimes at the request of school authorities.

大學教師不得不降低他們的要求,有時學校當局的要求。

Little wonder that a large proportion of those who graduated from college in recent years have run into severe difficulty finding employment.

難怪最近幾年,大部分的大學畢業生遇到了嚴重的就業困難。

These young people have not acquired while in school the types of training and skills that make them competent employees in today's highly competitive job market.

這些年輕人還沒有從學校學到足以使他們勝任當今競爭激烈的就業市場的各類培訓和技能。

Another disturbing outgrowth of the mushrooming of universities has been that the shortage of blue-color labor has become critical.

另一個問題是如雨後春筍般蓬勃發展的大學是造成藍領階級(blue collar)短缺的關鍵因素。

In our society, the traditional values that being well-educated equals having a high social status and that doing manual jobs is humiliating still prevail.

受過良好教育等於具有很高的社會地位,而做勞工是一種屈辱的傳統價值觀仍普遍存在我們的社會裡。

So, as the number of college graduates increased, the shortage of manual workers has become more acute.

因此,隨著大學畢業人數增加,勞工缺乏問題已經變得更加嚴重。

The idea of allowing all who desire a college education to fulfill their hope is fine in theory.

滿足所有人受大學教育的希望在理論上是行的通的。

In practice, however, it tends to carry more disadvantages, given the prevailing social and economic conditions of today.

然而在實踐中,因為當前的社會和經濟條件,它往往會帶來更多的缺點。

It is time the government reconsidered this controversial policy.

現在該是政府重新考慮這具有爭議的政策的時候了。

After all, the top priority regarding the reform of higher education is the improvement of its quality.

畢竟,最優先考慮改善的是高等教育的品質。

    Fearing to advance the number of dropouts, university teachers can't but lower, sometimes at the request of school authorities, the standards for students, making many of these young people too undertrained to survive today's highly competitive job market.

    The critical shortage of blue-collar labor has been another side effect of the the mushrooming of universities, which in turn is what the traditional preference of high education (presumedly equal to a high social status) over doing manual jobs has brought about.

    It's time the government broke this myth of diploma, propagandizing that it's the improvement of quality that holds the priority of the reform of higher education.
