Educating Rick

Robert Reich does a beautiful job today of dousing Rick Santorum with some realities about college education. He demonstrates the importance of a college education in today’s world, and addresses in detail the rising debt of college loans and the increase in tuition costs. That increase in costs means, sadly, that in the past generation, Mr. Santorum’s wish has actually been granted. Fewer students are going to college, simply because they cannot afford it. I know, Rick would prefer they stayed away for moral reasons. Unfortunately, the reason doesn’t matter; the fact that we are becoming less educated as a nation is hurting all of us.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
