    The head of a public southern illinois university was hired, worked seven months, harassed and pushed a university paid gardener. Apparently he had done other obnoxious things so they let him go but provided a half a million dollars to ease his pain. That would have paid to educate ten students. They claimed it was not tax money but I bet tax money will replace it to pay for what ever else they would have used the money. Universities are out of control on costs. They have their one percent they have to take care of.

    Unfortunately that is life. The fat cats at the top get fatter by bleeding those under them. Literally bleeding.

    I’d like to know what government imposed administrative costs come to. I know in hospitals it’s quite high.

    The colleges are getting real fancy now. Our local CC now has dorms with a big screen TV. The local state university has a completely rebuilt library and many other buildings. No wonder tuition is up.

    The U.S. Department of Education is forecast to generate $127 billion in profit over the next decade from lending to college students and their families, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

    “This is a profit-making machine for the Education Department,” said Chris Hicks, who leads the Debt-Free Future campaign for Jobs With Justice, a Washington-based nonprofit group. “The student loan program isn’t about helping students or borrowers — it’s about making profits for the federal government.”
