Our Universities: Me, Me, Me

Increasing costs, lavish loans, low performance standards, the absence of merit, and a lost sense of mission contribute to the diminishment of the effectiveness of public higher education. But most loathsome and detrimental is an organization hell-bent on deflecting every modicum of individual responsibility. The sole aim of the bureaucracy is to make sure that personal reasonability evaporates in procedure.

"You will never understand bureaucracies until you understand that the bureaucrats procedure is everything and outcomes are nothing."

Thomas Sowell
