HIgher education needs to be reformed and made more efficient, but it won’t happen as long as the govt is giving away govt guaranteed loans. The schools will take as much money as they can get to continue in the old way.
The physical plants are eating up billions and inflated salaries for professors who are non-productive takes the rest. We need research, but we don’t need profs who don’t really teach and don’t really produce research.
I don’t disagree with you however I’m not offering someone a $100K a year job who can’t make it through a 4 year program.
