How to Stop These Stupid Student Rallies

Students are being asked to contribute $2,000 to $5,000 per year to obtain an education and generally some form of certification.  The purpose of the process is to increase the value and range of services the student can provide to others in exchange for MONEY for the rest of their working lives.  Generally the increase in marketability results in hundreds of thousands more dollars over the rest of their lives.  It would seem that an investment of $20,000 or so up front would be a no brainer.

Now to  the problem.  It actually cost about $25,000 per year for that university education.  The taxpayers foot the difference!  IF the students actually realize the potential of the education it is arguably a good investment for those taxpayers.  However, that depends on the areas of study, the the quality and diligence of the student, and ultimately the overall productivity increase achieved.

There are a couple of things we now have to do.  We must match the taxpayer funding to the most necessary and productive disciplines.  We also must continually evaluate each student receiving taxpayer funds against the potential for long term return on investment.  We then should direct our subsidies to obtain the greatest return.

Now to the present problem.  The hooligans are disturbing our investments.  They need to be cut off from ANY access to taxpayers money.  They are welcome to pay their own way!

The government should ask the colleges and universities to stop collecting the obligatory student fees (the part that goes to student associations) and let the associations collect voluntary contributions from students.

Wanna solve the problem, let the police open fire on a few of the front line protesters, watch the rest run, arrest the one that are stupid enough to remain and have them clean up the blood and guts! I guarantee that this will work! Problem solved and peace achieved.

But oh no we shall not violate any person’s civil liberties now shall we???????????

No Anonymous 9:25 pm! I believe in peace, law and order and a civil society. I believe that the police are the should be allowed to institute the said. The problem is that we live in this liberal society that gives civil liberties to criminal and hooligans while chastising the police for trying to protect the citizenry and promoting a just and civil society. Lord have mercy on us!

Simple solution: take the costs of the riots and vandalism out of the budgets of the three colleges on strike.
