I totally agree with TP......No wonder the state is broke! Multiply this scenario times how many school districts are in this state and we see what is going on. Most people honestly can care less.... yet they complain about property taxes rising out of control?? GREED, Entitlement mentality, etc. etc. They use "the children" as a front to justify all the spending. We all know where most of the budget monies go!! Salaries and top notch benefit packages. It is really disgusting.

Sally...I agree with you totally....TP....you want our children to college knowing that the teaching jobs they will be going for will pay, less then they deserve???..or the architectural degrees will haven't the worth to create strong new structures???? If this is the case...why are we encouraging our kids to go to college knowing when they get out they will owe between $70,000 to oh lets say $120,000 in student loans...and the jobs are paying minimal....be real about it!....I wish everyone here had to disclose who they really are...

For your info TOO MUCH....All schools have the same thing going on...do you really think they don't??? All 3 of my kids went to Lacey....2 went into college and 1 into the service....What is worse...to have to pay off the $65,000 in student loans or putting your life on the line....? Sometimes I think paying off the damn loans that strangle these kids trying to get ahead...especially if they come out owing much more than expected to earn after graduation....

It's horrifying when you wake up to the fact that college is just another big business. It's all about the $$$$. When the President of Rutgers stepped down a year or two ago he was making $550,000. You wonder why tuition is so high. Government is to blame to pumping money into the colleges through student loans. The more $$$ coming in the higher the tuition goes. Pretty sick and these kids have no clue anymore. College grads are a dime a dozen. Big business, big money that's what it's become. Another bubble ready to burst.
