Is the attack on our consulate in Benghazi on college kid’s radar screens?
We spend untold billions on higher education. On top of those billions, there’s over $1 trillion outstanding in student load debt that is likely to end up the subject of some sort of bailout in coming years.
Dan Joseph from the conservative-leaning Media Research Center drops by the campus of George Mason University during the week of final exams to ask first about pop culture, and then about the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attack. George Mason is a pricey public university with excellent rankings. Out of state students are paying about $40,000 per year to attend.
The question for the day, is that money well spent? You be the judge.
So, is a George Mason education worth $160,000?
When you’re done gagging over this one, remember that George Mason is a fairly highly ranked university. Now imagine what the answers would be at the university or community college down the street from you.
This is what $160,000 buys today in higher education. Pitchforks and torches anyone?
