Drown Illinois higher ed, drown the state's future - Illinois State Journal-Register Editorial

Illinois, if it's ever to get out of the budget crisis in which it finds itself, must improve its business climate and grow its economy. So it's mind-boggling to try to figure out why the state's leaders seem content to kill the state's higher education system while they play out a political showdown without regard to the people it hurts. Remember the old adage about eating your seed corn? That's what our state's leaders seem determined to do when they don't pass a budget, don't pay universities what's owed them and don't support lower-income students seeking to better themselves through higher education.
