How can education be so much more expensive nowadays when the students are barely learning anything?

Question by Jonny: How can education be so much more expensive nowadays when the students are barely learning anything?
Education costs have been skyrocketing while college students seem to be getting dumber and dumber. Where is all the money going?

Answer by eri
Actually, the economy is in a slump and we’re letting dumber and dumber students into college as a result. If they can’t read or write well by age 20, there’s not much college can do for them – they shouldn’t be there at all. But plenty of for-profit schools are happy to hand out degrees if they can pay for them and minimally pass the classes somehow, dragging the whole system down.

    If students are barely learning anything, those students are mediocre students (almost by definition, since students are supposed to be learning).

    However, the fact that education costs continue to rise above the inflation rate is somewhat annoying…
