PINO: Public-in-name-only

July 28, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Recently I’ve found myself straying in this blog, moving beyond things ancient to comment on issues related to higher education.  These are important issues, and people need to understand the problems that we are facing in this country.

One major issue is the lack of direct funding for public colleges and universities.  Many institutions are now public-in-name-only with only a small fraction of their operating revenue coming from state funds.  As taxpayers, we need to insist that spending on higher education be increased.  Strong public institutions of higher education are essential to the economic and social well being of our state and nation.

For more information, please check out my letter to the editor that appeared in today’s Post and Courier.
