Higher Ed Bubble

As Instapundit would say, the higher education bubble is going to pop.

“Around the same time, Pyne began to criticize new graduate programs within the business school. Internally, he told colleagues that they were more like undergraduate programs in quality. He said as much externally, including in comments posted to a local news website, where he also mentioned his findings on predatory publications.” (Bolding is mine…)

I suspect he was right about both the predatory publishing (a method of inflating one’s academic credentials) and the new program… after all, in response the university: 1) Told him that faculty, staff, and students were afraid of him 2) refused to give him access to complaints against him 3) ordered him to take a psychological evaluation or be forced onto medical leave 4) banned him from campus and confiscated his keys… which seems more like what you’d do with someone making threats of mass murder or something…

He messed up, he thought that the university cared about excellence…
