College Tuition Should Vary By Degree, Florida State Task Force Says

If you want to save money at Florida’s universities, you may soon have to choose biology over ballet or engineering over English.

A state task force created by Gov. Rick Scott has released its preliminary recommendations on how to revamp higher education. The proposals end the one-size-fits-all way of funding universities.

Highly distinguished universities, such as the University of Florida and Florida State University, could charge more than others. Tuition would be lower for students pursuing degrees most needed for Florida’s job market, including ones in science, technology, engineering and math, collectively known as the STEM fields.

The committee is recommending no tuition increases for them in the next three years.

But to pay for that, students in fields such as psychology, political science, anthropology, and performing arts could pay more because they have fewer job prospects in the state.

This is the logic of Puritans. It’s all of a piece with the attraction the MSM and many “serious” economists have for austerity programs to the bizarre movement that would force a woman to give birth to her rapist’s child,

It is a worldview that privileges a dreary bleakness over joy.
