Higher Ed Bubble Week at College Insurrection

Higher Ed Bubble Week at College Insurrection

Your weekly report from the world of higher education.

It was a rough week in academia.

Things are tough all over.

Which might explain why this is happening.

At least good things are happening in Texas.

Title IX is leading to all sorts of madness.

Duke University is having some free speech issues.

She’s back.

Speaking of rape culture.

Hint: The answer is yes.

All leftism, all the time.

Do as he says, not as he did.

Good for them.

Yada yada yada…

Thanks for reading College Insurrection!

Seeing that this is dealing with “Higher Ed..” I thought this letter from Denis MacEion, who has a Ph.D in Persian/Islamic Studies from Cambridge, to the UK National Union of Students, worth broader exposure, especially to American colleges, in light of his exposure of the bigoted hypocrisy of the BDS movement.

” …
The world you live in is upside-down: you claim to act in defense of human rights, but your motions do not reflect this. You give free passage to the worst abusers of human rights — countries that persecute religious minorities, suppress and kill women, throw homosexuals from high roofs, execute hundreds of dissidents every year, imprison, torture and slaughter — without rebuke. Yet you fulminate against Israel, which does none of those things.

Why should you think your resolution to boycott Israel will make the slightest impression on the sixth largest country, economically, in the world? It is a mere irritant that sends out a false message that tells the world more about you than about Israel.

Your prejudice is as appalling as your refusal to act fairly and honestly. Criticize Israel if you must, but at least learn that it does great good for mankind and that the best hope for the Palestinian people, with whom you express solidarity, does not lie in further acts of terrorism and warfare, “

The Higher Education Bubble (Encounter Broadside) Paperback – June 26, 2012
by Glenn Harlan Reynolds

America is facing a higher education bubble. Like the housing bubble, it is the product of cheap credit coupled with popular expectations of ever-increasing returns on investment, and as with housing prices, the cheap credit has caused college tuitions to vastly outpace inflation and family incomes. Now this bubble is bursting.

“In this Broadside, Glenn Harlan Reynolds explains the causes and effects of this bubble and the steps colleges and universities must take to ensure their survival. Many graduates are unable to secure employment sufficient to pay off their loans, which are usually not dischargeable in bankruptcy. As students become less willing to incur debt for education, colleges and universities will have to adapt to a new world of cost pressures and declining public support….”
