    Thumbs up College Endowments & Student Debt -- Shame Shame Shame

    When I graduated from law school, I was up over my Pelosi in debt. We paid $16,000 for a house in the ghetto of Cleveland (until we were robbed) and pounded the debt. It was a different time and my generation was, by and large, different. My daughters tell me their friends are graduating with 200k in debt (pharmacy school).

    These colleges have massive endowments and can well afford to let these kids pay less. Harvard has an endowment valued at $1.5 MILLION per kid. They won't b/c federal loan money is so readily available. That bubble is going to hit soon.

    Personally, I think there's a correlation between the availability of money and the rise in tuition:

    The answer is very simple. We need a wall of separation between the government and education.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.
