  •  I don't think it's tenure. (1+ / 0-)

    I was just disagreeing with the point that they're all higher-level.

    On the whole, I think universities are more successful than other organizations.  I can go to school in Florida, Iowa, Montana, New York -- and if it's a big state school, I can be confident that I'll get a good education.

    We don't do K-12 so well in the US, but our unis are amazing.  I say that as someone who went to FSU for undergrad work, then did grad school in England.  The English one was a Top 5 economics grad school, and they were teaching things I'd already learned as a junior at a school known primarily for football.  It wasn't even close.

    Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
