I think a big problem with education in general (in the USA) is that too many influential people hold that getting a good education is un-American or evil.

Go to Harvard? You're an elitist.
Study science at a reputable university? You're becoming an "expert" - and experts are bad.

It's sad to see how education is viewed in this country...
