This has been going since the dawn of recorded history. Even still one gets the feeling that a college degree is being debased of late. A story from the NY Times on literacy of recent college grads:

"The average American college graduate's literacy in English declined significantly over the past decade, according to results of a nationwide test released yesterday."
