Higher Education in Decline

July 14, 2017

Higher education has been in decline since 1968 when college administrators gave in to rioting students who demanded the removal of required courses. But, now we are seeing that financial decline is also in American higher education’s future.

The Hechinger Report has published a study indicating that there has been a 2.4 million student enrollment decline since 2011. Hardest hit are non-profit private colleges.

I make the case for what I call the “Coming death” of American higher education in my new book which will be published next month. Here’s what my publisher writes:

In The Coming Death and Future Resurrection of American Higher Education, Dr. Richard Bishirjian describes how, beginning in 2000, he founded Yorktown University and immediately confronted barriers designed to block entrance of his University from operating as a low cost, regionally accredited, high tech, Internet university.

Dr. Richard Bishirjian’s book is a Cri de Coeur in which he passionately criticizes the higher education Establishment and laments the loss of millions of dollars of investor’s equity and twelve years of work and sacrifice.

Unlike any other study of American higher education, Bishirjian tells all, names names, and exposes how the education Establishment imposes tuition costs that force parents and students into crippling debt.

To name a few names cited in my book, Governor Jim Gilmore (R-VA) and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia (D-CO), U.S. Education Secretary Margaret Spellings and Education Deputy Undersecretary, Robert Shireman, and Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama equally contributed to this coming death.
