Lately I’ve been hearing more conservatives say attending college may no longer be worth it. For one, it’s becoming ridiculously expense. If you were to go four years at an Ivy League or like school, it’s possible to exit with a debt of well over $300,000. I have friends in their 30’s still paying undergraduate student loans. There’s something wrong that.
That’s not to say it isn’t necessary in some cases. Science, medical, engineering, all pretty much require classroom and lab environments, but in a lot of cases these days, actually attending a college is no longer essential.
And then there is the wackiness factor. We right-wingers have understood for years the perils of rampant runaway leftism being thrust on our young skulls full of mush (hat tip – Rush) as they go away to school, only to be taught more about the evils of capitalism and white privilege, and the benefits of communism, multiculturalism, social justice, and gender studies than the subject matter they signed up for.
So when I read about the latest campus flap, I was not the least bit surprised.
