Some colleges say education is attempted (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

essayed

'is attempted' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'some colleges say education' is the wordplay.
'some' indicates a hidden word (some of the parts of the word are used).
'ESSAYED' is hidden within 'colleges say education'.

(Other definitions for essayed that I've seen before include "Attempted, endeavoured" , "Attempted, strove" , "tested" , "Made formal attempt" , "Had a go" .)
