Markets in Everything: College Classes at Midnight

In June, I reported about college classes at midnight, and they just started this term at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston. One English professor's class is full, but he's not too happy about midnight classes and says this is part of a national nightmare.

This "professor" probably believes Obama when he says that we can all have unlimited health insurance that covers pre-exisiting conditions at no extra cost to the taxpayers.

Maybe this 'nightmare' professor should pay his students to attend classes during the day, so they don't have to work.

Oh wait, I forgot. Liberals are only compassionate with other people's money.

Maybe some of the day and evening sections would be available if the government didn't subside education and insist that everyone go to college. Then only the students who really wanted to go would be there, and we wouldn't have 50% college dropout rate.

I don't quite see how midnight classes are helpful for anyone. Only someone working second shift from 3-11 would find them helpful. But then they could just as easily go in the morning.

It sounds as if the reason there is a midnight class is because there is a lack of classrooms during the day (registrar added 107 sections this semester). That would be easily solved with temporary facilities (office park, trailers).

He volunteered. No word if he's being paid extra.

Since the students who have night jobs could just as easily take morning classes this seems like its some sort of publicity stunt to obtain additional funding.

Also, I'm not exactly sure why he has a problem with the research universities. He works at a community college but would like to work at a university...
