Connecticut has passed a law protecting colleges against lawsuits alleging that they failed to provide students with a valuable education in exchange for their hefty tuition charges...
But instead of doing something to make sure that colleges do provide value for money, the State of Connecticut has apparently concluded that the only way to protect college revenues from pesky lawsuits is to make it illegal for consumers to sue them on those grounds. Another sign that things are not well in American higher ed.
I think people are figuring out that a lifetime of six-figure debt in return for a X Studies degree that guarantees an appointment to barista school is not a good deal.
Now that the institutions can't be held responsible for their misleading advertising and poor performance, it'll just get worse.
