I find it funny how she brags about her well-paying job which is director of admissions at a $51,000 a year school to sit through 8 classes a year,she then complains about her $3,700 child care bill from her mini-mansion filled with chandeliers and granite counters thanks to her director position at an education program that sells university educations consisting of around 32 classes for $204,000 or $268,000 if a room and meals are included plus interest if it's paid for by loans.

Her career is basically selling alot of debt that is not even a tangible product, its a service that has some ink on a diploma in exchange for $204,000 and sitting through 32 or so classes.

Yet, she claims her life is so difficult because has to spend $3,700 a month so she call a sales person for her $204,000 program that consists of 32 classes many of which likely serve little purpose.

I am envious of the easy job that she has, but not envious a $3,700 monthly childcare payment.

I am to honest to sell a $204,000 program consisting of 32 classes or $268,000 for 32 classes plus little room and board.

Everything in that rant is possible because of the free market that you are always raving about, what happened, are you in favor of socialism now?

I don't consider government subsidized debt the free market.

Much of her paycheck is subsidized with government and yet she complains about child care costs.

Government subsidies for child care so she can live a lavish lifestyle admitting students into the school paid much of it paid for with government loan money

Much of her lavish lifestyle comes from government subsidies from the government.

Student loan debt should be the same free market as credit cards.

Most of us are. Watching my daughters forced to take electives that did little or nothing for their futures and having to pay for it was maddening. They say that they are electives as if it is a choice, but the reality is the majors are designed to be credit short, forcing the student to purchase electives to meet the minimum required to gain the degree.

To me this is like buying a car, but the tires are extra. It doesn't come with wheels or tires. You can own the car but never drive it unless you buy those tires.

Why do you care so much.

You really need some help -- you keep looking anywhere and everywhere to find people you think aren't living their best life -- why?

If you are living your best life -- live it....let the other whackos have theirs.

Live and let live.


or are you trying to tell us only you way is the right way.

Another either or position. Why does it always have to be either or?

Why not identify what is broken and simply fix it. Courses designed to not deliver the required credits to gain a degree, requiring electives to make up for the short fall. This drives the cost of education up. As does fielding sports programs that lose money. As does tenure for Professors who are questionable at best. It seems every week we hear about another professor thats is completely unhinged and yet the University finds a way to keep them in the game.

There are other models out there. We dont have to copy paste, we can study what they do right and that works for us and reapply. This model of courses designed to be credits short? No that is a damned scam that would make Trump proud.

Once again why is it an either or scenario? You didn't answer that basic question which is based upon your position that I replied to.

You can have a free market without the scams. Universities absolutely are a free market business. They can absolutely be profitable without scamming the consumer.
Identify why Universities are so expensive compared to many other countries and fix it.
