Dr. Arthur F. Kirk, Jr.

I am not going to argue that a four-year college education isn't expensive. It is. I won't argue that its return on investment makes it worthwhile, although it surely does. I also cannot argue that increasing the number of administrators doesn't increase the cost of a higher education. It does.
