"Like the proverbial swan that appears to be gliding smoothly and effortlessly across a lake, higher education in the United States usually is portrayed by leading American media as sailing in reasonably calm, if not placid waters. Record enrollments and torrents of applications, billion dollar fund-raising campaigns and research breakthroughs---these are the triumphant staples of major coverage of higher education today.
True, the media occasionally tut-tut about the odd malefactor in intercollegiate athletics or student financial aid. And, occasionally one encounters a story about an “unconventional‷0i0k0i0n0d0x student who is a single parent and works a full-time job. Nevertheless, mainstream media coverage of higher education emphasizes the success stories of prestigious institutions, the strenuous competition of high school seniors to gain admission to those prestigious institutions and a healthy serving of big-time intercollegiate athletics. The picture the media paint is one of prosperity and success in an industry that in economic terms is characterized by excess demand for its products. Substantially absent from this portrait is the ferment and segmentation of higher education that actually has occurred in the United States in recent decades."
