Partisan Split on Education’s ValueJuly 18, 2017 |
by Paul Wagner
There have been several recent news stories over the last several days about a study from the Pew Research Center that found a partisan divide regarding opinions on the perceived value of colleges and universities. As the executive director of the Council on Public Higher Education, the association of the 15 presidents and chancellors of Missouri’s public universities, I would like to address this issue.
Historically in Missouri, and today, we certainly do not see higher education as a partisan issue or in terms of liberal versus conservative.
