Financing Nevada’s Higher Education System
Here is a simple formula for the demise of Nevada higher education: One, zero funding from the state; two, totally inadequate income from research; and three, potential hundred thousand dollar a year tuition for the students. Obviously, three will never happen because students don’t have the money, and if they did, they’d rather go out of state to a higher quality school that costs far less. You tell me how you can take the three components of financing Nevada’s higher education system and make the system productive. I don’t have a clue.
