Why does student debt keep going up and up even as it’s harder and harder to find a good job with a college degree? And why does it seem that the more aid the government and colleges give, the less it helps? Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, shows how politicians and universities have saddled students with dangerous debt…and with little to show for it.
In light of the perplexing stupidity of the recent events at Yale and the University of Missouri, it’s worth questioning whether American colleges and universities are worth the financial commitment we’re making to them; there is clearly both a lack of accountability in a financial sense and, more than that, a lack of connection to the real world on campus. It’s a bubble, both fiscal and cultural, which can’t be sustained and ought to be deflated as soon as possible.
