Re: "Students and families are becoming more skeptical of the value of a
high-priced college education . . . ."High time!Hidebound "higher-ed" institutions have deteriorated into posh
playgrounds for an indolent leftist elite, curiously committed to destroying the
capitalist system that finances their 1% lifestyle. They cater, primarily to
callow, uncurious, government-funded acolytes, often lured more by love of a
drug-dimmed, radical-student lifestyle, than of learning. This leaves serious
students on their own, to learn those skills necessary for success in the
workplace somewhere else -- often, in the workplace.Sadly, real
education occurs more as a by-product, than as a preparation for the workplace.
And, it occurs more often in much lower-cost community colleges and for-profit
institutions than in high-cost, tax-funded, "top-tier" universities.
This article must have hit a raw nerve for proc. "..posh playgrounds for an
indolent leftist elite"? I wonder what he'd say about high school grads
we always hear about whose home is mom's basement and whose occupation is
video game tester? I guess in proc's world you can rip both sides at once,
then jump on parents for "overindulgence".
Expect more students coming from other countries to fill the gap.
