If you consider the costs of a Harvard or Yale degree, and how important it is in leading circles of business and academia in America* along with legacy admissions,then it's pretty damn obvious that higher education is becoming a place to train the children of the elites along with the upper middle class of MBA's needed on Wall Street and having the brains to actually make the corporate enterprises function.


*I recall one of the few actual Marxian socialist economists in America- Richard D. Wolffe, answering a question about how he found work with his radical anti-capitalist views...replying that he got his masters degree at Harvard and then worked on his doctorate at Yale, and all through his academic career that began in the late 60's, that was all that counted when he was being interviewed for a job!

Thanks! If there is a real scandal, it's turning centers for higher learning that used to offer liberal arts education to teach young people about the world and how to think for themselves, into STEM career schools that are just there to teach what's necessary for the professional careers needed to run the machinery of business and commerce.
