“Higher education been very, very good to me!”
Gee, why is our college tuition so high?
A former Yale medical school administrator has pleaded guilty to embezzling some $40 million from the university in a “fraudulent electronics purchasing scheme” (https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/former-yale-administrator-pleads-guilty-embezzling-40-million-massive-fraud). She used the money to buy three real estate properties and a fleet of high-end luxury cars.
She could go to jail for 30 years.
Sheesh! No wonder it costs so much to get a degree in Queer Fat Studies.
Our major universities are money pits; and we are not convinced that all of their expenditures are honest.
Costs (https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=yale+annual+tuition): $57,700 in annual tuition, plus another $17,250 in assorted expenses (meals, fees, etc.)… Well, that’s $74,950 a year. If you put in four years, that’s just a shade under $300,000. But who just stays for four years anymore?
We don’t have the best education system in world history, but we surely have the costliest.
Honk if you think it’s worth it.
