Beyond the damage that is being done by the misshaping of minds - I would point out the incredible burden placed on the backs of the general revenue taxpayer by federally guaranteed student loans. The outstanding balance of all student loans at present is about $1.3T, 85+% of which is federally guaranteed. Certainly, some of those are Stanford MBA’s or Harvard MD’s - who represent little risk of default. But a significant chunk is folks who shouldn’t be in school, lured into programs at for-profit schools, that do little more than burn their tuition and leave the taxpayers as guarantors of their debt, holding the bag.

Sheeeeyit. It's been enemy occupied territory for at least 30 years.

I attended a Community College in Tacoma, WA in 1979 and one of my first papers was about how to conserve water. In a state whose unofficial motto is, "Washingtonians don't tan; we rust".

I dropped out a few weeks later.

Lots of truth in this article.

Tracking it back a ways, though, leftist-dominated universities wouldn't have such a lock on our high-school graduates' consciousness except for the daily dose of propaganda dished out in government schools.

That's the place to start, and responsible parents need to take heed today, not "when the kids start high school."

Social justice warriors are focusing on our children in kindergarten with their demands to stamp out racism, sexism anti-LGBT(UVWXYZ) bias and everything else they can think of to divide America into groups of pawns in their quest for total control of communications, culture and religion preliminary to a communist takeover of government.

Get the little ones into a private or church-sponsored school s soon as feasible and deprive the left of that 12-year sentence currently imposed on most of our offspring..

Wow, $1.3 Trillion. You are absolutely correct. What a drain on our country — and a devastation to so many lives.

Thanks for pointing that out, Wally.

The key is to stop federal funding if there is admitted discrimination against white people or discrimination against speech or political philosophy. It is so darn simple that it is funny.

Year-round community colleges are the answer. Teaching skills. Trimester system. No summers off.

The Right is only about 50 years behind, the institutions have already been seized, and the Left isn’t going to let the Right infiltrate like they did.

In my first year in college, I found out that they don’t actually teach anything but liberal dogma and crap. So for 8 years I signed up for classes, only went enough to learn exam dates and I studied my butt off on my own. I have 4 engineering degrees, without ever listening to anything the instructors ever said. I have no idea why they need teachers in college. You can get through just fine by just reading text books and following your own way.

All federal funding should be eliminated. The GI bill is the only program that shows any promise and even that needs to be cut back. 80% of college student have no business entering college and should be able to work without phony credentials or excessive licensing.

any governmentally-issued scholarships, grants, or loans for students or colleges

should go to programs which have direct economic or defense value.... engineering, real sciences, maths, real business programs, computers, manufacturing, automation, technologies of various sorts, etc and etc.

where the students can earn livings upon graduation.

anyone who wishes to study humanities full-time has my blessings... such learning can add a great deal to a person’s life and appreciation of things such as culture, arts, music, literature, etc.

wonderful stuff!

but it should NOT be at the taxpayer’s expense, nor should the government issue loans for liberal arts/humanities type studies that the taxpayers so often wind up having to repay ....

Yah, well, with all these grave situations we’re battling, might be worth a gander to discover how the ding dong hell we ended up fighting off our extinction as conservatives. Either asleep at the wheel or a learning disability in my book.

HIGHER education? Hell, virtually ALL organized education is enemy territory now, from childhood to adulthood. We’ve got demonic looking trannies reading to our elementary school kids, how-to instructions on anal sex to high schoolers, and “Woke” teachers at every level. Forget college. That isn’t mandatory yet. If you love your kids, you’ll get them out of public schools, stat, and either homeschool them, or if you can afford it, send them to private schools.

Universities will be replaced by proctored online education.

When something becomes too costly, it’s always replaced by a lower cost solution.
