College Costs

Doesn't know much about Social Security, may not want to learnRepublican Rep. Tom Reed of Corning said Republicans will back efforts to further education goals, “but just to grant a free two-year education to people is problematic. We already have an $18 trillion national debt.

“The common ground may be, how do we drive costs down to make them affordable to all students going to college and a universities?” he said.

How would Tom drive costs down, one wonders:

  • Larger classes
  • Fewer professors, more adjunct instructors
  • Less research
  • Fewer subjects for study
  • Lower pay for teachers
  • On-line classes

Is low cost education what we need, or had we better find the funds to maintain high standards?

    Tom Reed’s kids will without doubt be going off to college soon. It’s such a shame that since Tom and his party have as much as sworn an oath to prevent every good idea the President has, he can’t come out in support of what he would also undoubted have his kids take advantage of – another “socialist perk”. Do you suppose Tom is demanding that his kids pay for their own college educations by working minimum wage jobs?

      well the way public education is working, grades K-12, maybe the kids would work harder at it if they had to pay for it.

      • BOB McGILL says:

        forgot, at about $17,000 a year for a kid to go to school at tax payer expense, when even the military says it isn’t working, why should tax payers pay for another 2 or 4 years ?
