....are due to Liberalism, Inc. 1. It has been widely reported that college student debt has been increasing in recent years as the cost of higher education increases at public and private institutions and as more students enroll in postsecondary institutions. In 2010, student loan debt — about $1 trillion — exceeded the amount that Americans owed in credit debt and the cost of a college education increased at a rate greater than inflation over the past three decades. Nearly 6 in 10 (56%) of the recent college graduates in our survey borrowed from a government program or private banking institution. Another 8% said they borrowed money from a parent or relative that they are going to pay back. 2. Upon graduation, the majority of students (55%) owed $20,000 (median) to pay off the costs of their education. .... the median public college or university debt was $18,680 whereas private college debt was $24,460. Male graduates owed $5,000 more than female graduates ($25,000 versus $20,000). Recent college graduates enrolled in graduate and professional programs already owed $10,000 more than those who have not pursued additional education ($20,000 versus $30,000).' https://www.heldrich.rutgers.edu/si...cts/uploads/Chasing_American_Dream_Report.pdf 3. "Economics Prof Blasts Higher Education for Wasting Tuition Dollars on Diversity Hires Prof calls college a ‘racket,’ blasts diversity hires ... blaming it on the “diversity people” who he says have flooded the university system with unnecessary and perpetually increasing expenses tied to a seemingly endless need for more and more diversity initiatives and faculty. In his op-ed for The National Interest, George Mason University professor Walter E. Williams explains that institutions of higher education have started budgeting for “diversity and equity personnel” to accommodate the modern-day college student. The idea, Williams says, is to protect “vulnerable” groups of students from “hate speech” and “microaggressions,” noting that they have even gone as far as creating speech codes and bias-response teams to investigate complaints. As each of these programs is created, colleges and universities find a “need” for more programs and faculty and therefore more money to fund these initiatives. Diversity programs and staff come at a high price. Williams cites a study by a group called “Minding the Campus,” which found that Penn State University’s Office of the Vice Provost for Educational Equity employs a total of 66 individual staff members. “The University of Michigan currently employs a diversity staff of 93 full-time diversity administrators, officers, directors, vice provosts, deans, consultants, specialists, investigators, managers, executive assistants, administrative assistants, analysts, and coordinators. Amherst College, with a student body of 1,800 students employs 19 diversity people,” writes Williams." https://legalinsurrection.com/2020/01/economics-prof-blasts-higher-education-for-wasting-tuition-dollars-on-diversity-hires/ Doesn't seem to be much of a leap to see this trend....by Liberalism, Inc......to be connected with the university system turning out he dumbest graduates ever.
