Almost ALL LEARNING IS PRIMARILY DEPENDENT ON THE QUALITY OF THE EDUCATOR! There are some real horror stories about education, such as one person decided to get his Ph.D. rather than continue to work at Microsoft and if he had stayed at Microsoft he would have been rich! Education often works similar to the addiction model because if persons are unable to pay off their student loans they can defer their loans by taking about 6 units a semester; these students tend to seek out the easiest and most corrupt instructors, so they tend to not really learn anything. However, due to the strength of the union it is almost impossible to prosecute any educator for wrongdoing. Sometimes the saying- those who can do and those who can't teach- seems true.
The cost of education does NOT mean it has high value, or reflect its value.
