A basic rule of life is, when there's a cost, someone has to pay it. So why doesn't anyone in Frankfort seem to understand that?
The State's Council on Postsecondary Education now wants to disallow some of the tuition rate hikes recently proposed by Kentucky's colleges and universities. UK and U of L have both proposed nine percent increases -- and some schools want even more - but the Council wants to keep any increases in the three to seven per cent range.
Nice idea. But it fails to acknowledge the real costs of running any first-class college or university. Sure, our pathetic legislature should have come up with other responsible ways of supporting higher education, but they dropped the ball. So guess what?
There are consequences.
I appreciate the Council's sympathy for students and their concerns about affordability. But we simply can't afford to let our schools slip into mediocrity or worse - which will happen without adequate funding from somewhere.
So yes - as much as it hurts, I think tuitions have to increase by more than the Council would like. It's a shame, but someone has to pay for the sins of our alleged representatives.
I only hope those incompetent lawmakers are made to pay a price of their own when the time comes.
