Oregonian has a decent article on the state of higher education in todays opinion section!
author: PSU Student
I liked this article and that is saying alot. The oregonian is a corperate news paper so I think that it rarely does a good job telling the news well, but being a PSU student and knowing the issues myself. I was very happy to read this article. I think it illustrates the crisis in higher education very well. Note that it is only going to get worse so be prepared to support more student protests in the future.
