Phil Magness discusses his new book (with Jason Brennan) about the problems with higher education. They aren’t talking about ideological conformity, bad as that is. They are discussing other problems, just as deep and pervasive.
For example, most academic marketing and advertising is semi-fraudulent. To justify their own pay raises and higher budgets, administrators hire expensive and unnecessary staff. Faculty exploit students for tuition dollars through gen-ed requirements. Students hardly learn anything and cheating is pervasive. At every level, academics disguise their pursuit of self-interest with high-faluting moral language.
