Because, say 50 years ago, it was?

Even excluding degree inflation?

I remember spending 45 minutes of a 50 minute mathematics class that I (not my parents) was paying for listening to a professor yell about how the library wasn't getting enough money to buy books.

Then there was the TA, the one 'teaching' a different class, who I had to show how to solve the problem.

Not to mention of course that I realized half way through my electrical engineering degree that when I graduated that I would not be able to actually create an electrical circuit that would even work in the real world.

But at least I would know what an 'ideal' refrigerator was. (Certainly no information about how a real refrigerator worked.)
