Liberals like to whine about the importance of higher education yet they do zero to make it affordable. The current system of sloth and wasteful social science research
is pricing college out of affordability.
Let us end the pretense that Social science has value. Most of these articles are in irrelevant journals that less then one hundred eggheads read. Society gets zero value or benefit from Chomsky or Norman Finkelstein latest stupidity. Most of these programs are jobs programs for Bolsheviks.
Require all professors in the social sciences teach a minimum of six classes or three hundred students. The evaluation of educators should be entirely on the ability to educate.
The current 64 credit liberal arts ciriculm should be cut to 39 with the balance remaining in business classes. When the college graduates leave and apply for a job they can have a clue. Marketing 1001 is more relevant to graduates then Marxist diatribes about mating rituals of some obscure group living in the rainforrest.
Accademia is out of touch with the American people. It is time that it be held up like any other business. If their costs are out of control no more student loans.
