Marginalizing Leftist Idiots - Number Forever

In today's Clarion-Ledger, (obviously a retard) Ronnie Agnew, has an opinion column talking and whining about tuition increases at state universities. Needless to say, he is EXACTLY wrong in his opinion. Excerpted:
The College Board met last week and held startling discussions that usually don't make news until a few weeks before the school doors open. Officials are already preparing to increase tuition at Mississippi's eight universities and will hear presentations at a future meeting from university presidents on proposed amounts.

This is scary stuff for any parent trying to balance shrinking household incomes with rising expenses. Instead of considering an annual tuition increase, the College Board will consider a plan that would raise tuition three consecutive years. There is no question that some will be priced out of an education at a four-year institution.

Obviously, Ronnie doesn't read his very own paper, because yesterday the Clarion-Ledger ran this article talking about Hinds Community College graduating the largest class ever. Excerpted:
Sanders, 40, of Richland, was part of the largest fall graduating class in the school's history with 618 students.

The number of students participating in fall graduation is up 42 percent from last year, according to college officials.

Um, at HCC, graduation numbers are UP, UP, UP FORTY-TWO PERCENT IN ONE YEAR. I am guessing if that graduation number is UP, then enrollment has to be up, too, amiright? The normal person, meaning not a simpering moron, would immediately wonder why in the mortal Hell enrollment is up ALMOST FIFTY PERCENT in one year. But, Ronnie in his infinite wisdom thinks that tuition is too high? Do I need to reiterate that liberals are fucking morons?

Since I am not a simpering wetbrain, my guess would be that if your enrollment doubled in a year, you are probably going to need a shitload of new buildings to handle the huge influx of students and those buildings might cost money.

And then I would probably think that my tuition might be a little too friggin' low if all of the sudden I doubled my enrollment.

But, what the Hell do I know, I am not a stark raving lunatic. Ronnie published his column ONE DAY AFTER the article about the largest graduating class at Hinds EVAH.

Guess which president that Ronnie Agnew thinks is the best thing since a pocket on a tee-shirt?

Please take the time to comment.

Is there ANY intelligent life at the Cladipus Licker?

We have a semi-private school here in Topeka. They wanted to come into the State system and I started the rumor that if they did, they would be only a junior college and they would have to close their Law School. You should have seen the scamper to kill the move. The problem is that no one wants to admit that we need to have only a couple of colleges and a bunch of Junior Colleges feeding them. There is a move afoot to kill the brick and mortar college and go online. Cut the cost down to reflect the benefit.

Skunkfeathers, no, there is none. The fact that they continue to publish Bill Minor's columns proves that.

MUD, not only do we need more community colleges, and less universities that we are supporting, we also need even more schools opening that teach technical skills. Maybe when we decide that not everyone needs to be a doctor or a lawyer, things will change.
