This, from a school that selective? Priceless.

The writer lost my confidence by the second paragraph, in which he writes this:

And consider that cost: Colorado College, for example, has an annual tuition of $39,900 — and once room, board, and supplies are factored in, that rises to a whopping $52,000 for non-Colorado based students.

Of course, CC is a PRIVATE college, not a public college, so the cost to Colorado residents and non-Colorado residents alike is the exact same thing, with the exception that out-of-state students might need more gas money and/or plane tickets for school breaks.

Stoopid.

Outsource your kid, to institutions still supported by their states –

We heard talk at our U of our SS&H faculty being the one targeted for “continuing restraint”. Jeebus, people, you’ve already eliminated 1/3 of our faculty complement and now you’re not only saying “no new hires” but “don’t count on those courses for adjuncts”. Even as I teach more students, I shoulder a heavier administrative burden due to a dearth of colleagues and a glut of needy students.

And I know it’s not easy in the other faculties where they’re being driven to chase research monies while holding together their programs in the face of professional society reviews or the like. Our peers aren’t the enemy. Taxpayers aren’t the enemy. It’s the educratic reform movement that’s out to destroy the heart and soul of universities as outposts of teaching and scholarship, closely allied as they are to a business mindset that sees outsourcing as the smartest move in the playbook and anything that can’t be quantified as unreal and unimportant.

This amount is in the middle the range of the cost of just making public high education free. Now these aren’t equivalent — much of what is spent through the tax code will be biased more towards private and professional schools, which are more expensive. But this also isn’t anywhere near the full extent we subsidize student debt (a government creation from 1965).”

http://www.newdeal20.org/2011/12/20/could-we-redirect-tax-subsidies-to-pay-for-free-college-67700/

So we could save money if we made public high education free, but we’ll do this stupid $%&* instead.
