Does this week’s strip have some connection to real life?.Once again GT gets into some pretty arcane stuff that few people are paying attention to – in this case some stats on private vs. public colleges that average folks wouldn’t know how to begin to fact-check..My concern regarding higher ed is the overall cost inflation. The “higher education bubble” doesn’t have just one cause. The cause that seems to involve the largest number of deadbeats are job-skills-irrelevant courses. Especially the ones (such as anything titled “_____ Studies”) that are subjective in nature. Yachts are for the already-rich, not for the struggling – luxury-item curricula should be treated likewise.
