Vedder's research demonstrates that America’s universities have become less productive, less efficient, and more likely to use tuition money and state and federal grants to subsidize non-instructional activities such as huge pay raises for the administration, reduction in teaching loads for professors, opulent social functions and funding sometimes trivial research.
I've been wondering why liberal academia, so eager to foist socialism on the rest of us, is also so unwilling to put it into practice. PhDs in Universities make a goodly sum . .tuition has risen far faster than inflation . . University professors talk the socialist talk, but they don't exactly slip a portion of their salaries to beleagured parent.
