Don't trust the terms "studies", or "research shows".It's a trick!
Education and the college system need to be separated. When colleges care more
about sports than they so their biology department they need to rethink their
priorities.Private colleges can do whatever they want. But the state
colleges that WE PAY FOR regardless of weather or not our kids attend there need
to serve the public.
Worth it yes. Extortion, yes as well. It is agregious how in five years my
tuition at the U as been doubled. I don't care if it's for sports or
the PAC12. In fact, that makes me more irritated. They shouldn't be able to
charge that kind of money until I am getting the kind of education I would get
at a school with superior scholastic regard like UW, UCLA, or Cal. I am weary
of people making obonoxiously high salaries and since they don't have
enough of a conscience to take less money, it follows that they fee like they
deserve it. I am talking administrators who make 200k plus and will never ever
need that much money. Don't get me started on CEO's who's
compensation is in the tens of millions while employees are being laid off or
haven't had a raise in 5 years. Disgusting. And it will never change.
