There's a reason college costs are going through the roof and Students are going into massive debt... education is facing the same enemy that the middle class faces. That's the message Debra Leigh Scott offers in her article, How The American University was Killed, in Five Easy Steps. Scott offers a new perspective on one more way that corporatism is waging war on the middle class, on the American dream and on most Americans.
There is a massive difference between mega-corporations and small businesses. The big ones and their obscenely wealthy CEOs, owners and top execs are waging an all out war on the middle class. They are pushing for laws, legislation, regulations and de-regulations that will kill people. Kill people.

August 12, 2012 | A few years back, Paul E. Lingenfelter began his report on the defunding of public education by saying, “In 1920 H.G. Wells wrote, ‘History is becoming more and more a race between education and catastrophe.’ I think he got it right. Nothing is more important to the future of the United States and the world than the breadth and effectiveness of education, especially of higher education. I say especially higher education, but not because pre- school, elementary, and secondary education are less important. Success at every level of education obviously depends on what has gone before. But for better or worse, the quality of postsecondary education and research affects the quality and effectiveness of education at every level.”
