Well you already give athletes a free ride for playing a game...

No, they get a "free ride" for making $millions for their schools. Sports are a HUGE money maker for colleges and universities, or they were till the liberals forced them to spend the same amount of money on women's sports, which is mostly wasted.

Really, 'murica? Yet another anti-intellectual drive?

One big fat reason against this is that no basic research will get done because no theoretical science study programs will recieve any kind of funding.

let's be honest here, what do we think college/university is really about? is to get an education in a field that you want to pursue? or to study something you are interested in or like doing? or, and this is going to anger some people, is it a tool for indoctrinating young, impressionable teens into left-wing ideology? A little of each i think.
my opinion is that publicly funded college/uni should be about training or education for a career. not for a hobby. for example, i know a girl who did a degree in playing a musical instrument... she had to do a further year to increase her employability in flute playing, now she is considering doing another year to become a music teacher. she should have just done a degree in musical education. 2 years of wasted money and time. but she has very left-wing opinions and that is the only result that matters, right?

The problem of unemployable graduates with worthless degrees started when the government took over the student loan business. Can you imagine a banker in his right mind loaning someone $200K to get a degree in Ethnic Studies or Feminist Literature?

BTW, McDonald's is advertising to hire college grads as cashiers. What the hell else are you qualified to do with a degree in 12th Century Chinese Poetry?

Once again, liberals ruin everything they touch.
