Re: Not even touching it!

When government dumps tax dollars into an institution, two things invariably happen: the cost of everything the institution does goes up, and the quality falls through the floor. Since the propagation of the Pell grant and all the other federal grants and loans, college tuition has (amazingly!) gone up over 400%, while the value of the sheepskins has fallen to next to nothing.

I'd bet a dollar to a donut that the ratio for PUBLIC school costs, since the introduction of mandatory federal schooling, has done at least that much. And noone needs to ask about the drop in quality--- a high school diploma isn't worth wiping your arse.
