InstaGlenn is really flogging the “higher ed bubble” lately. Rightfully so. Lots and lots of people are doing it. Its cost has risen immensely faster than inflation, for decades. Meanwhile its supposed product…thinking minds…are in ever-dwindling supply.
But no one else is making one point in this rightful Uni-bashing. In addition to everything Glenn and others point out…they’re a bunch of beggars. My former college sends me ten or fifteen solicitations a year. I have no complaints, other than that. I’ve never needed my degree, but as it’s work related my former employer subsidized most of the costs. The teachers and administrators I worked with were all fine folks. Overally, I’m very glad to have gotten my B.S.
Because it made Momma happy.
What I don’t like is the begging. It’s pathetic. Higher ed is pathetic. Ivy League schools have billions in endowments, goverment subsidies, high tuitions…and they’re whiny beggars.
Nice business model, beyotches.
