Call for a Revolt Against Hi Ed Costs and Naysaying

Bruce Kesler’s post on the rising costs of higher education, which he says merits the same critical attention as those of the health industry, brims over with useful insights and figures. For example:

Like any union, faculty demand higher salaries, but conveniently omit certain elements of compensation, like short work schedules, or few classes taught, or generous fringe benefits.

He urges a “revolt of taxpayers and parents,” which would “help cure America of its naysayers, negativists, and internal enemies of cultural and national security survival.”
