College tuition in GA set to rise again

BWAHAHAHAHA…

I go to a public university in GA. The comments on the Augusta Chronicle’s page are, as always, worth the read. One of the commentrs sounds suspiciously like one of my professors from last semester (and the fact that he hints at the fact that he has his doctorate).

Chapters 6 & 7 of Lonergan’s Insight has only solidified my stance on public education being one of the few responsibilities of the government outside of the minimal state proposed by the strictest of libertarian viewpoints. Yes, I’m in favor of free higher-education. I think that even ditch-diggers and janitors ought to be able to dissect Plato’s Republic, discuss literary theory, comprehend economics, do calculus or any other of the number of “useless” skills one picks up at a university. It should be their choice though – and not billed only as the means to a higher paying job.
