Today universities have a two-tier class system: Tenured professors and administrators on top, with generous pay and benefits and job security, while many (in some places most) required courses are being taught by the equivalent of serfs, with low pay, no job security, and little in the way of status.

Why is a Harvard education so coveted? It cannot be it really makes for a better educated person. Maybe it is connections.

Forked-tongued utterances are the most common weapons used by criminals.

It’s been said the greatest benefit of a Harvard degree is never again having to be impressed when you meet a Harvard graduate.

Of course the prime benefit is the open doors because of the sheepskin and its connections.

Harvard is nothing but a graduation factory for snobs

Why is a Harvard education so coveted?

Only coveted by those who feel it's important for them to be able to tell others they graduated from Harvard... kinda like someone buying a Ferrari so they can tell others they drive a Ferrari.

She made over $429,981 in one year at Harvard.

It is too bad that the yutes don't know these kind of numbers.

They want free education, but is any college prof worth that kind of ransom?

What service and knowledge can she perform or pass on that has that kind of value?

In a capitalist system, you are worth what you can get, in a communist system, you get what the commissars need to give you for your loyalty.

Which is the beauty of a crony-capitalist system like ours where buying off political favors runs rampant - and it is worth it so you can keep what you are getting and not have to go out and compete against newcomers every day.

My parents were both professors at a state university and retired in 1986 at salaries less than what your typical high school teacher made in the same area due to NEA collective bargaining. Mom had only a Master's Degree, so ranked a little lower on the pay scale.

But it still shows you what the elite have done to the cost of a college education. Incidentally, both parents were in the hard sciences, not some fluff studies. Mom's Dad was a college professor. But Dad got his education on the GI Bill following World War II Service. He grew up herding sheep in the high desert.

She made over $429,981 in one year at Harvard for 1 day a week course and I bet not every week.

She is a thief.

The best way to cut college costs is to cut professors salaries.
Cut them all to $80,000.

“If professors really believed in socialism, why don’t they teach for free?”

If teachers really believe in socialism, why don’t they give all students the same grade?

The total endowments of universities in America exceeds half a $TRILLION. That’s something to think about when these kids come out of college less intelligent with a worthless degree and a pile of debt.

My daughter-in-law is a Harvard grad and says she would steer my grandsons far, far away from attending. She doesn’t look back on her time at Harvard with fond memories.

This same women decries Capitalism.

They pretty much do since all they have to do is get in, from there out they have it made. I am pretty sure Hillary led the parade, at her school, to replace letter grades with Pass/Fail so everyone essentially receives the same game since no one fails.

I wouldn’t expect them to work for free. But I would like to see them earning a subsistence income instead of becoming wealthy.
