I am a vet and a student at PSU and I feel that by and large the actual students like me are being left out of the over all discussion. I feel that the students voice should be one of the things that people listen to the most. Our system isn't broken and there isn't a huge problem with the current system, with the exception of lack of support from the legislature.
I strongly feel that education is a right, not a privilege for the few in the state that can afford it out of pocket. A system that is public provides equal opprotunity for any qualified student to find funding. However a privatized system, or one which incorporates certain elements of a private system, would not allow equal opportuity. I fear that qualified students will be pushed aside based soley on the students finacial background.
