Romney: At Least We're Not 48th
An op-ed in today's Boston Globe stated, "Although Romney talks about a commitment to higher education in the mold of great public universities in Ann Arbor, Mich., and Madison, Wis., the talk in his case has been exceptionally cheap. Under Romney's leadership, the state's per capita contribution to higher education slipped to 47th in the nation. Negotiated salary agreements were not honored. Capital projects, unfunded for a long time, yield rotting infrastructure, such as the parking garage at UMass/Boston." It's tragic to hear Governor Romney talk about his accomplishments on Beacon Hill, because most of them are mirages.
