RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I found the topic to be particularly laughable in the show today. Having a discussion about increasing the number of college graduates while simultaneously reducing the higher ed budget by 15-20 percent does not seem to make sense.
A 14% tuition offset by increase in the Oregon college assistance program? The advice just given about turning a BA in History to a 2-year in vet med or a trade program? The real question is there are many graduates coming out as qualified teachers while schools are cutting teachers by the hundreds.
Face it, Oregon does not value higher education. I have lived here since 1980, have a bachelors, work at a university here, and have always found Oregon not increasing support for higher ed.
OUS has stated that four of the eight campuses are not self-sustaining. Time to down size to increase support. Oregon is in the bottom of funding for hgher ed.
