The American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA, located in D.C.) published a deeply concerning article commenting on facts presented by a Harvard student writing for the Harvard Crimson. The piece is in the current issue of ACTA’s publication Inside Academe, and we posted a copy below.
Student Brooks Anderson revealed that Harvard has one full-time administrator for almost every undergraduate student and one for every three professors. The tuition is $52,659 yearly despite a $53.2 billion tax-free endowment. Worse yet, many of the 7,000 administrators are doing nothing for students. Instead, they are dedicated to DEI – diversity, equity, and inclusion.
As an example of their effectiveness, one task force created another task force. The same task force also hired an administrator. They’re propagating.
Harvard is funding thousands of administrators instead of lowering the tuition or investing in programs for students.
ACTA reviewed spending in 1500 colleges and universities and found that while tuition has increased, there has not been “one significant improvement in graduation rates.”
This lunacy is taking place in one of our most prestigious universities. How did we get here? More importantly, how do we get out of this?
We no longer have to wonder how the people of Germany went mad in the 1930s and 1940s. Ideology conquers all reason and common sense.
For lack of a better word, this is sinful. Yet, we have faith that this will turn around at some point.
No need for a degree! All one needs is to be part of those groups – non white or female or lgbtq – and they will be hired !
Communism will always destroy itself. Unfortunately that happens long after they have destroyed you and the host country!
a Harvard Degree isn’t worth the paper it’s printed upon
Why are endowments Tax Free. When I worked in Boston in the 1980’s Harvard was a massive local business and the stereotype for the raging bully. Large businesses with deep pockets throw their weight around with their money to the detriment of the public. 53 Billion would go along way for the long suffering taxpayers of Massachusetts.
There’s no reason to learn anything at an elite university. Nobody cares! It’s the piece of paper, which will get you a high=paying job, but is technically worthless. I think if were an employer, I would be looking for hard workers who specifically do NOT have an elite degree.
Unfortunately this is not true when the Government hires people!
