  •  We have lost the idea that education (4+ / 0-)

    Is a public good that should be supported by all of us. That is the majority of the reason tuition has gone up so quickly. States used to pay much more of a student's costs. At public universities , a system that allowed people from all walks of life all over the country to get an education. I would think that many of the things that also cost money, the need for technology and air conditioned dorms (which is largely new in the last 20 years) and several other things put a strain on resources. Yes there are craziness eps in athletics and administration growth that should be looked at and adjunct issues are horrible exploitative. But if there was any concept of raising taxes to pay for what we used to have in education, this country would be a lot better off. But who is willing to raise taxes outside of California (where it has been working well)?
