22.4.17

TEN YEARS AGO.

I was passing along Margaret "University Diaries" Soltan fulminating about "simulacral education."

But I can report progress in one battle.  "Why not allow Texas Southern to bill the common schools for all the remediation that must be inherent in the university's retention efforts, futile though they turn out to be?"

The state universities are not yet sending the bills, but in some places, including Wisconsin, the legislature has required the state universities to make a little list and name names.  I'm waiting for the returns from the fall 2016 entering class.
