On the multiplication of community college tuition subsidies
Here is some testimony from 2011 (pdf), by Mason M. Bishop:
…the myriad of job training programs funded by multiple federal agencies needs to be curtailed. Currently, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Science Foundation are all funding community college education and training grants. The proliferation of funding for post-secondary education and training programs from Federal agencies with no experience in education and training issues, only serves to foster “mission creep,” duplication of effort and a waste of valuable resources.
Here are my earlier remarks on the new community college subsidies proposal. Here is Mason Bishop on Twitter, with further remarks.
