An April 2 CNSNews.com article by Thomas Cloud uses the NCAA men's college basketball champaionship game between Kansas and Kentucky to ... bash gender studies.
You can spend four years earning a degree in “Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies” at the University of Kansas or a degree in "Gender and Women's Studies" at the University of Kentucky.
But the degree will cost you more at Kansas if you are an out-of-state student than it will at Kentucky.
At Kansas, according to the College Board, tuition plus room and board is currently $21,446 per year for an in-state student and $34,832 for an out-of-state student.
At Kentucky, it's $22,142 for an in-state student and $31,754 for an out-of-state student.
That works out to a cool $139,328 for an out-of-state student to earn an undergraduate degree in gender studies at Kansas versus just $127,016 for an out-of-state student at Kentucky. That's assuming the tuition and board and room costs don't increase--and the student finishes in four years.
Why spend so much time and money earning a college degree in gender studies?
The more logical question: Why did Cloud wasate so much time and money writing this bitter, mean-spirited piece of "news"?
