close Video Ingraham: Victimhood U Why would young people embrace a failed system like socialism? Look no further than America's college campuses. As we see polls showing young people slouching towards socialism, it got me thinking. Why is this happening? Why would they embrace a system that has proven itself such a colossal failure? Think about it. A contraction of liberty. A scarcity of goods. Scarce medicine. And power concentrated in the hands of governmental authorities. Socialism, I think can be in part attributed to its new spokesman. People like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Because the key to understanding this fanatical fad is that when you're a socialist, facts are kind of irrelevant. Now why? Well, they're irrelevant because the ends, in a supposedly more equal society, justify the means. Here’s how Ocasio-Cortez put it recently: “If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they're missing the … [Read more...] about Laura Ingraham: Victimhood U — Our kids deserve better than that what they’re being fed on college campuses

“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future life,” said Socrates in Plato’s Republic. It seems many Americans agree with this sentiment in the millenia-old text; last fall 18.4 million students enrolled in postsecondary education across the U.S. according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Centre.Despite America’s spiralling student debt crisis—which has now collectively reached the $1.5 trillion mark—it still pays to earn a degree. According to the OECD’s 2018 report Education at a Glance, a man in the U.S. with a tertiary education will earn an extra $500,000 over the course of his career (that number drops to just over $300,000 for women).The report also found that having a highly educated population is good for everyone, not just the individual. The public sector in particular benefits thanks to greater tax revenues and social contributions.However, future university applicants should know … [Read more...] about Ranked: The Best Colleges in America

When Sue Stuebner took over as president of Colby-Sawyer College in the summer of 2016, the only thing rich about the 178-year-old institution was its history.A small liberal arts school with a modest endowment, Colby-Sawyer is heavily dependent on tuition. From a high of around 1,500 students a few years earlier, enrollment had dropped to 1,100 and the college was posting multi-million dollar operating losses.In an attempt to boost its enrollment, Colby-Sawyer followed a prevalent national model: raise tuition, but offer generous discounts. By 2016, the college was discounting 72 percent of its students’ tuition, according to data from the U.S. Department of Education.It was an untenable situation and a story that’s playing out at small, nonprofit universities throughout the country, prompting fears about the future of liberal arts educations.“We’ve definitely turned the corner,” Stuebner said, but it required hard choices.Colby-Sawyer eliminated 20 … [Read more...] about Colleges fight to preserve legacies
