As if the over-optimistic and well-manicured weren't irritating enough touting the value of a college education that fewer and fewer can afford (and when they can 'afford' it are often saddled with $100,000 in debt at the end of four years), now comes word that food pantries are on the rise on campus.
True, colleges are making things as easy as possible with grade-curve marking systems (don't want to turn away revenue streams, right?), but there was a time when food pantries were for the homeless or those in dire distress ... which, on the face of it, colleges are not.
Easier grading system; less stringent academic requirements; reduced quality in the education paid for; increasing debt for decreasing education ... and now food pantries.
Am I alone or is there something grotesque in this situation?
