Pay for School, Sucka
The Florida Board of Governors, which oversees our belaguered university system, voted on Thursday increase tuition by five percent.
They want to make us pay.
I wish they’d just stop.
So does Gabe Pendas, president of the United States Student Association, the nation’s largest and oldest student group. “The board of governors continues to make decisions that hurt students and Florida families,” he said, “instead of thinking in ways to work together to make education a priority.”
The beautiful thing is that Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed the increase…and former Senator Bob Graham wants the state to lose control over this sort of thing.
It’s a virtual battle of the titans. Or actually a battle of the wacko versus the bon vivant.
Les just hope they stop making college klds the victims!
