Pretty ominous start with you first yell at some of the -- of Republicans has been you know it's more of the same is there really again it is -- gonna make a difference as I mentioned with rich.
Still a lot of the at a college costs come from the states.
And there has been an argument that you know a lot of they'd -- unions involved with teachers and administrators at some of these colleges.
You know -- they continue to get raises and their salaries continue to go up.
And of course that means tuition is gonna go off the books are gonna open -- and other things are gonna go as well.
Well I think you just take a look at an -- holistic manner it's not just going to be one thing that solves all of these issues.
As far as the rising economy -- the rising cost of tuition is concerned.
You do have to take a look coming in and I also think that the union issue -- say is not necessarily.
As poignant or as as.
It as you do -- AK through twelve we have a lot more unionized.
Teachers that are in the K through twelve system and they are in the higher rent especially when you involved.
Private education -- other nonprofit or for profit colleges as well it in Community Colleges.
In the whole system of higher rent so.
You know I think is right for the president to take a look but is also the need to be -- a holistic -- -- As -- person was he was saying you know taking a look at how much of the money has been put into the actually inside the buildings rather than just building continuing to build bricks and mortars.
I know -- my own school Baylor University.
In the last fifteen years we have been incredible building program and those buildings cost and part -- one of the reasons to pay for those costs.
Is to increase tuition so I think colleges need to take a look.
And try to be more affected inefficient and where there's a waste to be able to cut back almost -- waste because right -- and the burden of the student.
Funding for all let me -- the bloated government of the university and -- -- is building programs is really taking this whole.
Yeah and Baylor as we know is also significant building in the athletic department as well I didn't -- -- -- -- last the last few years.
-- -- -- one of our viewers just after ten a couple of people that one of them in particular flying high note Casey says you know why does work and pay as you go.
-- as we saw you know a couple generations ago.
College got pretty affordable here for -- now it's still you can make the argument not exorbitant if you go to -- state system.
-- but it is more -- only site in five years ago has gone up.
Some cases 3040%.
It has but that the president it looked at the press if we're trusting this president.
To root out fraud abuse and mismanagement when he can't even do it -- the departments that he's directly responsible for.
Stay out of colleges this is a decision a personal decision to the student make with his parents -- mentors high school.
It's up to the student to do the due diligence themselves not for the federal government's objectively.
To get information upon which the student may or may not rely it's up to them.
To look into the schools that they wanna go -- and then to do the research is enough research out there are quite independent.
Agencies that don't have any stake in the claim.
If students do their own work they're gonna make the right decision to -- -- to the government.
To determine for students where they should go why they should go there -- subjective information and by the way.
If the president really wants to help you get a job mister president 30%.
Are used between eighteen and thirty are unemployed stop working.
I've -- -- tour on food stamps it's not it's unacceptable it.
I was at a senate -- -- things that that that is I think that should be applauded that the president is doing is that.
In the past the federal government has awarded those four entrants -- -- for entrance just be able to get -- that the child into school.
So putting -- emphasis on pay for performance meaning.
Taking a look at a graduation rates you know.
Holding those schools accountable to be able to graduate -- -- student rather than just paying for them to come the end.
I think -- a good emphasis right green with Brad on the point that it didn't fare very subjective and the devils are going to be any of the details -- devil's going to be in the as to what these -- does look like because he's going to be.
That is and very slippery slope to go down an embarrassment for soap for our government to go down.
As far as determining what is a better university then and not based on some arbitrary yeah.
You know our -- that -- for any you know algorithms that are out there Zelaya as -- I think that campus is still as good.
But he really gonna have to pay close attention as to what the details come out to be.
Brad I want weight of one thing and maybe if we have -- -- about -- and a half left guys a little have you -- as well of the first.
To appoint one and by viewers want one -- first of -- says you know this is his college a bubble ready to burst in some respects him in the result the housing market.
You can make the argument -- a lot of college loans out there and barked topics camera and shaking his head yes.
And a second question is.
Do we want this much federal -- -- federal involvement in the college system because your have a significantly in the lower levels of education you both agree on.
I mean is this gonna -- it is taking us down the wrong path.
Brad is taking -- down the wrong path because you're encouraging kids to take on debt.
It at a time wind and -- they shouldn't necessarily be.
In school for a lot of kids they should be looking for jobs and the fact is that we've increased adolescents now is we've -- with obamacare.
That you can stay on your parents' policy of 26 went up forty.
That that we need to get back to the basics helping people help themselves not what we wanted to do was a government but what they are what they.
Their abilities far.
And there -- -- may not be.
College and yes there is a bubble out there today -- trillion dollar -- of people who have incurred debt and have no way of paying it back.
And I just -- and and then.
Sure I would never really quickly and not other -- -- -- to say really quickly that we need to take a look at all means of education meaning it's not just what you consider.
You know a traditional.
And nonprofit -- you'll also need to take a look at the -- tax schools trade schools you know are there weren't that can transition from your current job that you win that may have just been downsized.
Into another -- of taking a look at that again the education system as a holistic manner -- are taken into consideration.
