And above is a good example - unsupported statement. No evidence, no attempt at making an argument, just say whatever ...
QED Jliat. Unfortunately it goes from the bottom up.

In the UK High Schools are not considered Higher Education - such as colleges and Universities. So your source seems out of place. Moreover even allowing it, just what does it prove? What is this "it" that goes from the bottom up?
Maybe you are trying to prove that non-academics can't make reasoned arguments, but if so WhiteWarlock is already trying his hardest to do just that.
However: The number of students in the UK and possibly the USA who are going on to Higher Education and Gaining Degrees is increasing.
This could mean.
1. In the past students were not as smart or taught as well.
2. They chose not to for reasons.
3. Students with less intellectual ability now go on to Higher Education.
4. Degrees have become a qualification required for many occupations which once did not.
If 1 were true we would expect general intelligence in universities to be rising, but i cant see this. 2. In the UK Higher Education for students who had low income parents was free, now they pay fees and take out loans. 3. Might be true, as occupations like Police and Nursing, even Retail now has a high number of Graduates. And so also 4.
More people travel abroad these days, own cars and houses... more people have recourse to the legal systems...
Still if as you argue the Humsnist Liberal bent has destroyed academia, you need to show how that one school child suing his school and wining over a shirt which has pro conservative Trump supporting text is proof of this!
