The hits keep coming to higher education

March 05, 2006

The last few months, higher education has suffered some major setbacks in Washington. It started with the passage $12 billion in cuts to student loans and continued with the announcement of the President’s budget in early February.

The President’s budget will freeze or cut many important programs that prepare high school students for college and make it affordable. The real impact of these cuts was demonstrated in a recent article in USA Today.

“Students suffocate under tens of thousands in loans” - http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/general/2006-02-22-student-loans-usat_x.htm

My only question is when will higher education hit the breaking point? When will elected officials and the public understand the impact of state and federal funding cuts? When will higher education supporters fight back?
