Wgat's wrong with a series of surveys assessing university programs that samples "on a rotating basis: all undergraduate students, first-year students, and graduating students." Right: there's no sampling of people who were rejected, peopl would could not afford the programs, or people who dropped out or failed. So is it any surprise that "almost 90 percent of respondents said their university experience either met or exceeded their expectations." No, of course not. So does the Canadian University Survey Consortium receive a passing grade for this piece of propaganda? Not a chance. They should be sent away to the corner until they can come back with a fair and balanced survey of both winners and losers in the post-secondary education marketplace. And University Affairs should know better than to run this piece as news without commentary.
