Thomas Sowell explains why in three delightful columns. More or less, the combination of government subsidies to students, government research grants, and the demands of accrediting agencies have put univerities and colleges into a paradigm where teachers do not teach, resources are diverted to "research" of dubious quality, and the size of the library matters more than the quality of the education in determining accreditation.
(if you wonder why small schools are having trouble, read that last line again)
Looking around, I notice that schools which refuse federal aid--like Hillsdale, Patrick Henry, and new Saint Andrew's--seem to be on the low end of the tuition scale, not to mention the high end of the quality scale. Hmmm.....tell me again why we have a federal department of education? Is it to prevent the same?
