Inflated education values

a: education ~
b: real estate market

What: "Every year as the US government says it will increase the amount of guarenteed lending, colleges increase their tuition - magic! What will happen in education is like the real estate market. No college wants to be the first to say, "My tuition is too high based on the educational outcome, I'll lower it!" Thus colleges will cling to pre-bubble concepts that relate eliteness to high tuition." Yes, all that government money (loans) has gone into vastly inflating the cost of education. The educational institutions have become money whores of the first order.

a: Education ~
b: logging industry

What:

"Education is like the logging industry or the failing business in these examples. They failed to operate in a responsible way to produce desired results. Hence they invited regulation because they demonstrated they were incapable of self-regulating themselves to a set of acceptable standards."

a: Education Establishment ~
b: Great Pretenders

What:

"As best I can understand it, being in the Education Establishment is like being a priest in a religion. You have to embrace church dogma, totally. But finally the tenets of a church come back to faith. Then we're talking about God, infinity and complex things that you can't check out personally. But the gizmos that our Education Establishment promotes are not of this rarefied variety. These bad ideas are in the classroom. You can see they are goofy and don't work. You can measure the bad results. "

higher-education administration

a: higher-education administration ~
b: business

What: "But higher-education administration is like business in that having people report to you raises your status. Plus, the fact is, government relations at universities is so complex and pervasive that no one person can do it alone." I knew there must be a link between the 2 somewhere.
