STUDY BY THE AMERICAN COUNCIL OF TRUSTEES AND ALUMNI (ACTA):
Among the findings:
* Despite the fact that the average endowment of these schools is almost $1 billion, elite colleges raised tuition and fees 6.2% to 17.1% above inflation over the last few years, a time when many families were cutting back on expenses.
* Eleven of these institutions paid their presidents base salaries of $400,000 or more to run colleges that typically have fewer than 2,000 students. These presidents are paid as well as—or better than—the leader of the free world, President Barack Obama.
* Not a single institution except for the military academies requires a foundational, college-level course in American history or government. Only two require an economics course; only five require a literature course.
* All 29 institutions have speech code policies leaving students with less freedom than they would have in a grocery store or public park. READ MORE HERE
