College

So, is the next logical step that college should be free? Maybe Grad school too? Why not?

Why should high school be free? Or elementary school?

For the good ones they are not.

Nor are the bad ones if you think about it.

Colleges could do without a lot of the administration bloat.

They could also do without a lot of the tenured fossils who haven't done any real teaching or research in over 30 years.

“The Department of Education found that between 1993 and 2009, the number of administrative positions at higher education institutions increased by 60%—that’s 10x the growth of tenured professors, according to an op-ed published in New York Times.”

… wonder what the growth has been like since 2009?
