Would increasing student numbers in classrooms be a good way to cut costs?
Asked at Jayhawk Blvd. on February 10, 2002
“I would favor a tuition increase over crowding classrooms because I think that in doing so we would be lessening the quality of education that KU students receive.”
“I think that’s crappy frankly. … The most important thing about education is the interaction with professors. How are you going to do that with 50 people in a class?”
“Some of the classes are already congested. It just makes you not want to be there. It makes it uncomfortable.”
“Well, I want to know the alternatives. I have enormous faith in the chancellor. Obviously it’s one of the solutions.”
