G'day Dr. Mike. I truly belive that there is a connection between the rising cost of a secondary education and the liberal agenda. In addition to more money for useless administrators, diversity studies and the like, the increased costs have driven most parents and students to some form of financial aid. With her financial aid dependent upon her gpa, my daughter found it very difficult to confront her professors with a different viewpoint or arguement. If she voiced another opinion she was threatened with a failing grade and possible loss of money. Our household finances have taken a hit over just such a 'teacher' . We should all beware of govt. control of student loans and grants.
