    The higher education establishment does not have a revenue problem that needs to be fixed with tuition increases.

    They have a SPENDING problem that needs to be fixed by cutting spending. Surely some program have been found to be ineffective, little used, unnecessary, wasteful or duplicative. Or, some staff jobs are not really worth having (like maybe in the diversity or other political correctness bloated jobs that do nothing to teach students.

    The mere fact that this year's 5 percent increase is the smallest in the last five years, at a time when inflation has been near zero should be grounds for firing everyone involved with mismanaging Utah higher education programs so that their costs always increase more than inflation. Fire them all!

    Why? Inflation is less than 2%. Must be the great education the students are getting.
