Re: free market fundamentals in higher education

Professor Crofton certainly gave an enlightening talk.

Among other interesting points, consider the fact the the HPU campus is actually very beautiful, with fountains and flower gardens and statues. If you’d ask an opponent of free market education to describe what the campus of such a school would look like, the answer would probably be that it would be drab and barren — anything to keep costs down. But that’s not the case at all.

I have to wonder where HPU would be if, instead of choosing Nido Qubein as its president, the board had gone with a conventional academic type. The answer, I’m sure, is that the school would be struggling to stay alive.
