``If the drop in enrollments foretold a less-educated workforce, it might be a worrisome development. But fewer people might be going to college for the right reasons: There are better opportunities elsewhere. "When the economy stinks, people often try to hide in a classroom," says economist Ryan Sweet of Moody's Analytics. "The number of job openings now is higher than in recent memory. So the decline in college enrollment is generally a sign of a better economy."''
