On Regents considering higher education budget for next session


oldexbeat 4 years, 1 month ago

will be interesting to see how that not-Republican Republican lawyer votes. When you got to lie to get on a Regents board you must love higher education, right ? Probably be a big supporter of increased budgets and taxes, if needed. Right ? Huh ?

I'm sure Brownback will vocally support restored funding and new initiatives, until the legislature passes more cuts and he signs them into law.

Having one's cake and eating it, too. An operating principle of the Brownback administration.

It is about time for the Regents to figure out how they can do "more with less" not "less with more" as they have been operating. It is time for a change of attitudes and real spending priorities.

I would argue that KU is already doing more with less. Look at other AAU university salaries and budgets. We are close to the bottom. If you don't care about the quality of your flagship university, than by all means, shout if from the rooftops. "More with Less"!

You mean the 'flagship university' that charges full tuition to have high school graduates teach math courses? The one who makes students pay $85 for a CD with a .pdf of the textbook on it? That 'flagship'? Tuition has gone up 400 percent above inflation since 1980. The Education Industry is a complete scam and anyone who believes otherwise is working for them.

Does anyone in this screwed up system represent us? You know, the consumer? The Regents are in bed with the institutions, and all they do is tell us we should be thankful that tuition 'only' went up 5.5 percent while net income dropped 1.5 percent.
