Bernie Sanders calls out Illinois for holding higher-ed funds hostage - Colby Bermel, USA Today

“I come here and find out that this great university is being threatened with cuts. What is going on in America? Where are our priorities?” Sanders said to a cheering crowd within one minute of taking the stage at Chicago State. “How does it happen that we allow a great city to undergo incredible destruction? How does it happen that we are making it harder for young people to get the education that they need? “Everybody in this room knows that education is an inherent part of who we are as human beings,” Sanders said. “Why are people being punished for getting a college education? They should be rewarded, not punished. Why is anybody in the world talking about shutting down colleges?”
