Michael, in this case, I do believe additional tuition costs are the result of the Brownbackistan culture. Brownback believes that the only people deserving of a college education are white, wealthy, and of the Christian belief. Education of people of lesser standing should be curtailed… price them out of an education. State funds to schools of higher education will continue to be cut until Brownback’s legislature… and the Koch brothers… are allowed to redefine who is educated.
Kansas is taking on the persona of the ancient Romans. The honored… the privileged will sit in the high dollar suites and watch the athletes compete in Manhattan, Lawrence, and Wichita. The less privileged will serve the food and drinks, fan the privileged so they dare not sweat, and clean up after the wealthy. Non-white and non-Christians will slowly be ushered across the borders into other States that will accept the heathen.
Understand, the political clime at this point in time will see Brownback re-elected by a significant majority, while more and more dollars are cut from education.
