Maintenance and administration consume a hell of a lot more than you seem to give credit to. Teacher's pay is far from the only serious factors for a school budget. Certainly doesn't leave them with anywhere near a six figure salary unless the government subsidizes it.Students typically pay 300 bucks per semester course. Given standard class sizes of around 40-50 people, that nets 15-20k per class for a professor. Since professors teach around 3-4 classes per semester he would earn 120-160k, covering his salary as well as maintenance and administration.
Yep. Quebec students are so entitled that when fees go up in such a way that they'll be "slightly" higher after 5 years than the rest of the country, they start a quarter of a million student protest. Holy shit, talk about overacting.In Ontario universities, we pay roughly 3-4x as much. More than half of that goes towards research and other expenses.
No, it merely should be sustainable. Debt is not sustainable. It incurs interest and eventually must be paid back. Why bother with it? society still moves forward if we don't partake in debt management, possibly at a slower pace but there's hardly any rush. The turtle wins the long race and life is one hell of a long one.You assume society must run every institution like a bank, cut the losses and fuck all for anything that incurs debt even if its a beneficial service. Evidently you do not realize that a society can produce something for the sake of its benefits, such as primary school or elderly pension.
I am in favor of middle schools and high schools, mainly because kids can't exactly get a job nor should they have to, to pay for it themselves. And you can't trust parents do fork over the bill because a large quantity of kids exist without having been planned at all. Product of stupidity, human impulses, lack of protection and alcohol.
University level education though, is different. People who want to attend are adults who are most certainly capable of getting a job to pay for it themselves. It promotes discipline, character, fiscal management, everything that parents refuse or are incapable of teaching their kids. Life itself tends to be the best teacher as long as there are no safety nets. It was for me.
Why? I can do both and it gets the point across.You should stop trying to conceal your self-esteem by attacking the alleged stupidity of everyone round you.
