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.

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.

Don't trust the terms "studies", or "research shows".

It's a trick!
