Blame Trump Syndrome (BTS) @ the AAUP

, Malcolm A. Kline, 1 Comment

To Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), we have to add Blame Trump Syndrome (BTS). BTS is the tendency to blame the president for self-inflicted wounds. “It’s hard to imagine how deeply the policies of the Trump Administration will affect America’s colleges and universities,” Brian C. Mitchell writes on the academe blog maintained by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). “As a group, these institutions are already undergoing substantial disruption.”

“The old financial models under which most  higher education institutions operate no longer work. The current path for many of them is not sustainable. Many institutions face rising costs, deeper financial aid discounts, and dismal demographics.” Then why are they still using the old financial models while on this current path?

    This is a hard topic in my opinion, the fact is that Universities in United State are really expensive, time changes rapidly, i really think they should do something about it, if the old financial model doesnt work, try to avoid them somehow.

    In Mexico, schools are cheap, incluiding low, middle and high education, the problem isnt the money but it is the old clases that doesnt work anymore at least for me, because we use more advance tecnology, but even tho they know the problem they dont do anything, i hope Americans schools can hear about this finacial problem and solve it, and not just know the problem and dont do nothing as my contry does.

    thanks alot for this news.

    regards.
