Big Education Continues to Bleed Out

Awwww, you can see the end of the line off in the distance for Big Education.  What, ever, will those deans, assistant directors, diversity counselors and other worthless parasites do for real work in the real world with their worthless degrees?

Screech about automation and how there is no jobs left due to greedy capitalists, I presume.

Those people you call worthless parasites are anything but. They are somebody's cousins, brothers, aunts, friends, neighbor's friends or whatever. If you want to be a big politico, you have to be able to provide jobs for people your donors and big supporters want to get hired, but can't seem to find a job by themselves. What is the point of donating fifty grand to a politician's campaign if he can't get a job for Uncle Benny, one that doesn't require such stress like showing up every day or doing things. There are so many Uncle Benny's around, that we need big education and big healthcare and big government to take care of them all. Stop being so negative and start appreciating how the system works. It called representative democracy.

Interestingly, University of Michigan just announced free tuition to any in-state families in Michigan with a income of less than $65,000/yr and certain "asset limits"

Some of that administration costs is also helped along by more asinine federal laws like Title 9, ADA, and other such nonsense. Having to build facilities for women's sports which does not even have the interest that male sports do has been a problem. I don't feel sorry for them by the way, but that's part of the problem.

It's really amazing how every university had about a double digit increase in tuition in only 10 years.

Anyway, I guess what is laughable about public education especially k-12 is how even a valedictorian and salutatorian is not qualified and does not have enough education to teach any k-5 elementary school that fall right after graduation but a 100 years ago this was probably not a problem. I wonder what an overpaid dumbass administrator with an educational doctorate would say about that?

You are going to have to find a new gig dude. Your signature topic, worthless degress, is going mainstream. Once that happens the camp of continuing the crusade disappears.

So what is plan B?

If you can't beat them, join them: Purdue buys Kaplan University ( Purdue and University of Texas both have initiatives to get the tuition cost of a 4 year degree under $10,000 total. NPR has a bit on the purchasing, saying it may doom higher education. They're the last to see the iceberg ahead, apparently.
