A very good article on higher education. The conclusion, however, is weak: precisely because the problem is cultural (instrumentalism, technocracy, education as the door to the bourgeois life-style), public universities are affected by the same problems as private ones (except for the fact that it is easier to get in).

It seems hard to believe in universal democracy in a scientistic culture that ultimately recognizes no particular value in the human person. Technical progress and wealth accumulation do not require democracy.
