University of Lynchburg (notorious hotbed of Clinton fans)
Cost of university in 1999: about $17,000
Cost of university this year: about $49,000
I wonder what's up with that? They must love the Clintons!!
Oh, and Cal? This is from the old newspaper from the university:
"According to the Daily Californian, Berkeley’s student newspaper, the system instituted a $150 “educational fee” in 1970. For years following that decision, the state continued to use fee language that avoided calling money from students “tuition,” even as students were charged more money.
The decision to institute fees did not pass unnoticed. Shortly after being elected governor of California in 1966, Ronald Reagan proposed a tuition, a 10% cut from state funding and the firing of UC President Clark Kerr, who stood by students who were protesting rising costs. “We have to push Reagan right back to the wall,” Bettina Aptheker, a lead protester at the Berkeley campus, told the Christian Science Monitor in 1967. “If we have to, we will push him right through the wall....
the state began to move down a path of gradually pulling money out of higher education, going from funding 32% of the UC budget in 1974 to 16% for the 2004-05 school year, according to the Daily Californian. Meanwhile, the state’s Proposition 13 was approved in 1978 on a wave of anti-tax sentiment, limiting property taxes.
It was soon clear that, despite the UC system’s foundations in the 19th century and the 1960 master plan, the landscape had changed: There was less money to go around in California and thus less willingness to fund all the government programs of yesteryear. No academic ivory tower could shield the UC system from the new political and economic reality, and by the 2012-13 school year, tuition had become the school’s biggest source of “core operating funds,” the Berkeley paper said."
Huh? Good, old Ronald, ketchup is a vegetable, Reagan, proposed the tuition? And I believe, if not mistaken, was elected in 1987.
So, as usual:
Wrong. (And almost absurdly wrong on this one.)
