Stand and Deliver

Dear Short Answers:
My son is finishing his second year at a small liberal arts college. It is, of course, expensive and while he is doing passably well, he is not close to working up to his potential judged by his high school grades and test scores. What effort is good enough to justify the thousands of dollars we are spending. Should we demand more than just getting by?
Too Demanding?

Dear Too:
Set a standard and stick to it.  If his grades don’t meet your standard then he should go to a State U where he can do “passable” work on a much lower tab.
