An education is often only worth what those that created the education were capable of passing on to the "educated."
In the case of Liberals who run the majority of "higher learning" establishments in our nation, the value of education has become less and less over the years.
The interesting cavat is that while educations have become worth less, the cost of education has gone up over a thousand times.
Sort of like our current leaders in DC, they have become worthless, but cost us the citizens who pay taxes, much more than ever.
Sad state of the nation.
