Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Failing Grade: Oregon's Higher Education System Goes Begging is a collection of two decades of witty, hard-hitting articles by the Oregonian's chief political columnist, David Sarasohn. The columns track 20 years of cuts in funding by the Oregon legislature for Oregon's higher educational institutions, and the concomitant dramatic decline in their quality. The appalling statistics, dismal firsthand accounts of student experiences, and alarming comparisons with the achievements of nearby states are enough to shock the Oregon public (as well as those of other states facing similar cutbacks) and spur immediate, remedial action — or so the author and his publishers hope.
