Oh yeah colleges, would they survive without funding not from government but children themselves that want to go? You do not even get to the root of the problem...... yeah what you stated might be part of the problem but it is merely a symptom.
Ahh I don't think administrations are "the" problem with costs, just that professor salaries are not a problem with the cost of higher ed at all.
My personal feeling is private higher ed, combined with huge amounts of public aid going to people attending private schools, is driving up the cost of ALL education because public schools have to compete with private schools for students, which means facilities, services, and faculty all are also in competition with private ed.
The government subsidizing private ed is creating a balloon that I think will burst.
I am 100% behind the idea Morrill had of public higher ed for all. But I don't think the government should get involved in tuition easement for private schools. But do I have a good solution on that, no, because there are problems if you just pull all private higher ed grants. huge problems.
edit: and btw as someone sitting on a number of committees at a private university, fug the non-profit angle. what a crock of poo...
This is easy how else are they going to get funded?
Global warming changed to Climate Change when it really should Climate Cycle. The earth is a big A/C when it gets to hot it cools itself down, When it gets to cold it heats itself up.
500 years ago all the Professionals said the world was flat too.
It isn't hard to get funding if you have a stro ng testable hypothesis counter to the current prevailing ideas. Publishing in agreement with climate change doesn't get you money by default; I guarantee there is more funding in defining the new paradigm than riding on the coattails of the old one, esp of it is as flawed as people here seem to claim it is. Plenty of grants are funded critical of climate science but then the results bear out climate change ... And ofc we are talking funding from the government here which is only one source of funding... certain private entities would be very happy to hear from a scientist with a decent hypothesis counter to the norm.
Arguing science today is the same as 500 years ago is silly. As a process there are meaningful differences.
Panthers have better weapons than Seattle...I don't know who'd rather have Luke Wilson, Kearse, and whoever the hell else they have at WR....our passing weapons are actually better the difference is the QB...
Scheme, play calls, coordinator, coaching... Nothing to do with it?
