One response to “Privatization of Higher Ed Violates State Constitution”

  1. Barry

    Thank you Peter for this important post.  I went to public colleges in the 1950s and 1960s and they were tuition-free.  Though it must be said, that though the public institutions gave most a chance at higher education then, there was less concern about retention, if you didn’t pass and dropped out, that was system.  And women and minorities faced additional obstacles.  And tax rates were higher too.   Yet on the whole, the country boomed.  
     Why is it that our country, presumably richer and better educated than 50 years ago, can no longer make higher education affordable to all??
