College for Wealthy Elitists Only?

21 June 2007 at 4:21:11 PM

The answer may be yes. 

Fewer Texas children and their families will be able to afford the cost of higher education tuition.
Thanks for the sky-rocketing tuition costs of higher education go to Gov. Rick Perry and legislators who 2 years ago lobbied for their higher education special interests and approved legislation that deregulated tuition costs.  Since that time the University of Texas (UT) raised its tuition costs at least 3 times and other universities and colleges followed suit.
Following the latest "tradition" of higher tuition costs, Texas A&M today publicly stated it would raise tuition costs by 5.3 percent.
What does this mean for higher education in general and more specifically for Texas children?  Well, it means that fewer Texas families can afford to send their children to college and that a higher education degree once again will be held by the children of wealthy families. 
As working families suffer financially more in our American economy due to fewer jobs, escalating property taxes, high cost of home insurance, unaffordable health coverage and ever-increasing costs of daily living expenditures, we may now add higher education to that formidable list.
Slowly but surely these ongoing cost increases are eliminating what once was the American middle class majority.  Soon, we will be a nation of extremists --- extraordinarily wealthy and utterly poor.
As for the education of the majority of our children, they will become more illiterate.
It's time Americans take back their government and recreate the representative democracy it was supposed to be.
