As Gov. Tom Corbett weathers protests over his proposed cuts to education, he is also urging everyone to take a step back and take a broader look at how Pennsylvania funds higher education.
Corbett said in a recent meeting with Philadelphia suburban editors and reporters that there are some things about the way things work in Pennsylvania’s higher education funding arena that don’t make sense.
And the leaders of some local institutions of higher education agree with him.
“If we could re-design it all at some point in time, what should we do when it comes to higher ed?” Corbett asked.
