FromDC2Iowa: Community Colleges Are Iowa's Answer

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

No Time to be Cutting Community Colleges Budgets or Raising Tuition…
There are a number of components of Iowa's educational system --
pre-kindergarten, K-12, community colleges, and the Regents
universities -- plus the for-profit and private institutions. The
former are paid for with a combination of income, property and sales
taxes (plus grants and fees). The latter, it turns out, also benefit
from public funding. As a University of Iowa employee I have some
sense of what it takes financially to run an institution of this size
-- as well as a sense of what a small proportion of this "state
university's" budget comes from the state (rather than grants and
tuition) -- and the numerous contributions it makes to this state.
