According to Don Surber:
Harvard and company do not mind Asian American graduate students because they do research work cheap and knock down research grants.
It’s all about the Benjamins.
Yep. That’s why the colleges and universities put up with their cheating, even going so far as to help students hide out from Immigration when their visa expires (but that’s a whole different post). Read more on foreign students cheating here and here.
So what does Don Surber think should be done? Well, he thinks that the government should start by getting rid of the nonprofit status of educational institutions:
It is time that higher education paid the same corporate income taxes that every other industry in America pays. I would force Harvard to liquidate that $35 billion Harvard sits on in endowment funds. And I would tax donations to every college in the United States. These are not charities. They are huge corporations run by six-figure corporate executives.
Nor are these institutions exempt from civil rights law. I want to see someone punished for passing off Ward Churchill and Elizabeth Warren as Indians to meet some affirmative action quota. Perhaps the next president can RICO the Ivy League and even do a thorough antitrust investigation of higher education.
I’m no statist, but I wholeheartedly agree. The College Scam has to end. And I expect this to happen as soon as Wayne Campbell gets to do Wayne’s World for a living.
