Declining By Degrees – Higher Education at Risk

I watched a PBS documentary tonight which critiqued a number of aspects of the modern American college.

Many of the points are legitimate but they ultimately make the point that the public bears a social responsibility to pay for higher education and if we don’t dire consequences will follow. I happen to think private land ownership is an important aspect for a healthy society. Does society bear a social responsibility to give citizens who can not afford it otherwise land? As I watched I tried to listen to the arguments being made in terms of “land” instead of “education” and it was obvious that this would sound absurd to viewers, but since most of them were hearing “education” I am sure the arguments seemed reasonable.
