It boggles my mind that few reporters see a big story here, about the decline of America's largest university and the larger College Meltdown.
We're talking about a school whose promise in the 1970s was to further democratize education. But it resulted in an organization that preys upon the economically vulnerable, with marketing and questionable enrollment tactics--backed up with the worst of the US economic system--vulture capital.
Essentially, we have elite investors, using other people's money, at the top. Then layers of administrators. Then enrollment people struggling to be middle class being used to exploit working-class poor/underclass who in some cases think they are gaming the system. There are also the teachers, who are nothing much more than "inputs" and "variable costs" to be minimized. This system of oppression is not sustainable, and it undermines democracy.
