The question is not only whether education will be affordable, but what kind of education it will be...

If, as is too common, our universities are merely providing new technicians for sustaining the status quo, the debate over private vs public might indeed be moot. But, if we use higher education to accomplish higher ideals, as in experiments for realizing a better and more equitable world, the public could be convinced that student demands are justified.

It is up to us.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
