1 .A controversial topic which begs the question as to whether higher education should develop more B.S. graduates in graduates if there are not enough jobs for them to take.

2. Does your answer differ if we are talking about educating too many graduate students?   ie  M.S. and/or Ph.D.

3. If chemistry graduates are not necessarily the goal, shouldn't we agree that in a highly technical society, it is incumbent that we provide an adequate scientific knowledge base for as many folks as possible?

4.  Who should train these students?  Junior college faculty, graduate students, College teaching faculty, or University Research professors?
