"Access to a college education at a reasonable cost is something that every Wisconsin high school graduate with appropriate qualifications should be entitled to receive."
I agree. I believe we are being very short-sighted not to use OUR tax money to benefit the future of Wisconsin. I'm tired of hearing that we are broke. Let's not make us more broken down the road.
Wisconsin's UW System has played a major role in the Genome project. This level of research and higher level learning is becoming out of reach for our own children. The knowledge and research you need in the future could be at risk today.
For the first time ever, the number of Wisconsin children enrolled at Madison is lower than those from out of state, who pay higher tuition costs.
I'd rather have a few less round-a-bouts, a few less discounts handed out to companies who want to relocate just over our borders for tax breaks, and instead, continue to invest in a more educated population base.
Are we being forced to become too elite for our own good?
