According to Peterson’s,
The average cost to attend a private college is about $26,000, and elite liberal arts colleges can run as much as $50,000 annually.
If that sounds a little steep for an education of dubious value that increasingly consists of deranged moonbat brainwashing, you might consider spending only $5 instead. Here’s the Amazon blurb for Reinventing the Liberal Arts by Tuck Newport:
Hardly a week passes without some luminary decrying the exorbitant cost of higher education and the sorry state of the liberal arts. But none of them explain, in detail, how to obtain a liberal arts education better than that offered by colleges and universities–in less than a year and at a fraction of the cost. “Reinventing the Liberal Arts: College in One Year for $5” provides a comprehensive science and humanities curriculum, with key elements field tested at a well-known liberal arts college over the past two decades. It includes an interdisciplinary survey of crucial concepts in physics, geology, molecular biochemistry, neuroscience, history, literature, ethics, politics, language, information technology, and management. This liberal arts and sciences curriculum also contains internet links to more than 100 relevant world-class video lectures by eminent educators at institutions such as Caltech, Oxford, Stanford and Yale. (Priced at $4.99 instead of $250,000.)
The easy dissemination of information made possible by the Internet is already crippling the Big Media news establishment. Outrageously greedy and arrogant Big Education is vulnerable too.
