  1. In Hawaii, a subsidiary of the NEA assesses public-sector post-secondary staff dues or agency fees. The same probably occurs in other union-ridden States. They supported Obama and (generally) promote his preferred politics. Plus, supporting “education” buys the intellectually insecure (such as our affirmative action President) easy intellectual credit. No way they suffer cuts. “Spending is stimulus” doncha know.

  2. Linking federal aid to a cut the rate of tuition growth? Good bye tuition increases, hello rapidly increasing lab fees, student activities fees and every other thing a very inventive and highly motivated college administration can think of to keep increasing revenues.
