Are we getting bang for the buck or being ...
Michigan spends two billion dollars a year funding its colleges and universities.
Michigan is required to support through appropriation our institutions of ‘higher learning’ as described in Section 4 of Michigan’s constitution:
“§ 4 Higher education institutions; appropriations, accounting, public sessions of boards.
The legislature shall appropriate moneys to maintain the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University, Michigan College of Science and Technology, Central Michigan University, Northern Michigan University, Western Michigan University, Ferris Institute, Grand Valley State College, by whatever names such institutions may hereafter be known, and other institutions of higher education established by law. The legislature shall be given an annual accounting of all income and expenditures by each of these educational institutions. Formal sessions of governing boards of such institutions shall be open to the public.
What this does not stipulate however, is the amount to be taken from our wallets and given to these indoctrination centers.
The video to the right is an example of the enlightenment your kids might experience in the pursuit of intellectual exceptionalism. We feed this nonsense by acquiescing to higher taxes and remaining silent when our representatives sell us out to the money interests and the left which profits heavily from our laziness.
Perhaps it is time to starve the beast.
