I find it interesting that liberals, who claim to champion the interest of the lower and middle classes, see no problem with ever-increasing student loan debt. I think that the sooner the university model is dismantled, the better, for everyone. By that I mean students should be able to demonstrate mastery and test out of lower level course material, and thus be able to work at a higher level if they choose. Students should also be given the option of taking courses from an online video library with proctored exams, and full credit, but at reduced cost. In this way, universities could serve more students with fewer faculty, and the faculty would spend more time teaching higher level courses. Students would have lower debt upon graduation, but university administrators would fall upon tough times. This is probably the reason it will take an outside influence and greater pain in order to force much-needed change.The liberals will defend the status quo of universities, while complaining about how evil corporations are. Maybe corporations should stop endowing faculty positions.
