Community colleges undermine high schools by offering endless remedial courses while a student can pretend to be in college. The solution is to charge double tuition for courses in basic math and composition. Younger brothers and sisters would catch on quick that they should learn the subject the first time taxpayers pay for it--in high school.

We need to starve the beast. Scott Walker cuts the university system by 15% in his new budget. Rauner in Illinois wants to do the same. Walker says professors should begin thinking about teaching more classes. He proposes eliminating tenure. See http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomlindsay/2015/02/09/war-gov-scott-walker-prods-professors-to-start-thinking-about-teaching-more-classes/. There is a "disengagement contract" between professors and students: Professors will require little and students won't complain. Patrick Henry College in Virginia is another commendable school.
We saw video of Sen Cruz filibustering Obamacare. Why is it that now we don't see video of Democrats filibustering the HS funding?
Perhaps it was unclear--employees paid 1% of every check for all the years they were employed.
Illinois 'producers' benefited from the underfunding of the pension plan for decades. Citizens had artificially low income tax rates of 2-3% for decades while the State paid the education, transportation and social service bills with employee pension contributions.
The Medicare rate is 1.45%, so 1% is comparable. The total pension contribution was around 9%. But answer the question: Would it be fair to ask your parents to pay the entire Medicare premium tomorrow?
The article fails to mention that the Illinois legislature shorted payments into the employees pension plan for decades. And that Rauner wants to eliminate subsidies to pensioners' health care, many of whom have modest incomes and paid 1% toward their retiree health insurance from every check. Would it be fair if the federal government stopped the Medicare program, citing the "police powers" of the government? Next time, write a more balanced article.

Abolish tenure, especially in social sciences, journalism and humanities.
Don't forget the collusion of Columbia and Harvard.
