So basically you have a problem with tuition money being spent on all professors in higher education?
I think the type of scholarship matters (legal scholarship being particularly worthless minus the quantitative stuff). And yes even with other departments I don't really feel like it should be subsidized on the backs of students. If the student burden is manageable (e.g. state schools) I can stomach it but if it's atrocious (e.g. GW undergrad tuition) then that's a problem.
I mean look at all the worthless humanities BAs that get churned out. And I even think that people should have a background in the humanities, but I don't think it should cost all that much.
