Politicians on both side of the fence love to parade their thoughts on "Educating America"...what better topic is there to get everyone cheering right? Not so fast. College administrators, faculty and educators are all engaging in fraud, corruption and greed. These institutions are no longer about educating students - far from it - they exist to extract as much money from those students, the government and their parents - all at the same time. We all know that tuition is so far over the top that it is a giant-sick joke. But it goes much farther. Only in America can colleges everywhere increase the prerequisites for a particular degree, lengthen the years it takes to get that degree - but actually reduce the hours the student spends in degree programs!! A "four year degree" is now taking five and a half to six years to obtain. And in many cases the student only spends 3 of those 11 semesters in degree programs. The rest of the time they are piling up pre-req's that has absolutely nothing to do with their chosen field. At the same time colleges everywhere are building more and more campus apartments that are even more lucrative than the tuition! "Quad" apartments where 4 students live in a truly small space - each paying between $600-$800 per month! Holy Cow...that's up to $3600 for a five room apartment that is less than a 1000 sq ft. Talk about a money maker. And why would students pay so much?? They aren't. The government pays for it - and the government is no stranger to overpaying for goods and services. Outrageous.
