Rendell Wants More Aid, But Not For Us

Governor Rendell wants to pump $128 million into financial aid for students going to schools in the state system and community colleges.

rendelllandspanierStudents whose family income is less than $100,000 would be eligible for up to $7,600 for tuition, books, fees and room and board when they enter the 14 State System of Higher Education universities and the 14 community colleges. Rendell also proposes adding $45 million in grants to current and incoming students through the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency.

In total, Rendell is pushing for an increase in aid money of approximately 25%.

None of that money will go to Penn State students, though. Students from Pittsburgh, Temple, and Lincoln are also out of luck.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
