PRIVATIZING HIGHER EDUCATION

Privatization is happening so quickly and on such a colossal scale in higher education that it is difficult to stay current. Once the privatized parts of an institution are removed--—food services, bookstores, custodial services, maintenance and housekeeping, computer services, remedial academics, health and counseling, advising, recruitment, retention, accreditation, marketing, financial services, parking, police/security, residential housing, and academic programs—what is left? What remaining part of the institution is worthy of allegiance, praise, and tailgating?

WHY COLLEGE MATTERS

College degree vs. no degree


1. The college-educated commit fewer crimes

2. They are less likely to be recipients of government aid

3. They make higher salaries and save more money

4. They pay higher taxes

5. They have fewer health problems

6. They live longer

7. They are more likely to vote

8. They are more likely to volunteer

9. They are more adaptable and more socially mobile

10. They tend to be happier

Outsourcing on a massive scale includes most functions of a university or college, including academic programs.
