Higher Education

Universities aren't what they used to be. Today, the government has reduced public funding for higher education. As a result, academic institutions place advertisements in national periodicals to attract paying students.

Most of the ads are rather staid and bland; they blather on in reverent tones about commitment to excellence, high standards, rich traditions, blah blah blah blah blah. My local education factory makes no such claims. Its ad features an attractive young woman with large breasts, she's obviously the type of colleague a new student might expect to find here. Party party party!

I understand the ad is doing very well. Universities are what they always have been.
