    Gates does Sanders!
    Maybe they will fix for-profit colleges being overpriced, inflating grades, selling outdated content - you know, the stuff that gives the boss all those well-deserved bonuses that students and taxpayers end up paying through the stratosphere for, all while having to complete globally against people who either paid far, far, far less for the same skills and/or were trained by Americans...

    Want to fix sky rocketing college tuition prices? Get the government out of the loan business. Treat student loans like a business loan where the students have to meet with the bankers and provide a plan. Quit having the indoctrination centers aka public schools tell students even students that have no business going to college that they must go to college to be something and earn a decent living. It's hard to place all the blame on the students when they have literally been lied to their entire educational career.

    Consider the University of Washington. There is something grossly out of whack when the president of a public university makes $910,000/year. That astronomical salary doesn't account for benefits, such as the UW president's free lodging: a mansion on Lake Washington currently valued at $8.5 million.
