Frank J. Tipler wrote the textbook for my college physics courses (yes, more than one).  He's none too happy with the current state of collegiate physics instruction, and despairs of it getting better any time soon:
I fear that in the very near future, education in physics will have to be obtained from some source other than a university. It is becoming increasingly clear that this corruption of education is probably universal across all disciplines. If so, then all advanced education will have to be obtained outside of the university. And if that is the case, then why should universities exist at all?
