Now It’s Getting Serious

6 04 2017


It was thought that the enrollment decline at Mizzou, whatever its cause, and that is subject to debate, was both temporary and could, in the eyes of the school, be papered over by paying Andy Blunt to bribe enough members of the General Assembly to tweak a few line items in the budget.

The bribing and the resulting tweaking mostly happened.

But the enrollment problem hasn’t gotten any “better.”  In fact, it’s getting “worse.”  So much so that Mizzou is going to shutter three more dorms next school year.

I don’t know how the admins are going to worm their way out of this one.  They can’t do what they did last year, because the state budget only has so much wiggle room.  Off top, they’ll probably recruit hot and heavy internationally for students whose parents can pay full freight.

I live close to WU. Yet, it might as well be on the other side of the world as far as I care.
