Michigan pays dearly to self immolate.
We spend a lot on ‘adult education.’
Michigan’s 2019 budget includes $405,000,000.00 in community college funding, but a whopping $1,658,932,000 in university funding. The sacred cow University of Michigan share of the taxpayer pie is nearly that of the total community college amount, yet my guess is that there are more Michigan based students attending those community colleges than at the 15 universities we sponsor.
We must of course remember that this is subsidies for institutions that cater not to the tender innocence of childhood, but rather to those who would be otherwise considered self supporting and responsible for their own educational progression and care. Even so, they might still have minds of mush, which makes this other thing a little more poignant.
Our universities are destroying our nation. And we have been giving them the fuel. From the hill:
Today, after 22 years of being a college professor, and having traveled much of America to lecture, I am sad to say the situation is not the same. The core principles and foundations that keep the United States intact, that provide our citizens with their civic personalities and national identities, are being annihilated. The gravest internal threat to this country is not illegal aliens; it is leftist professors who are waging a war against America and teaching our young people to hate this country.
I agree with his point.
Read it in it’s entirety. Its time we own this, and then act accordingly.
Or we have learned nothing.
