Mizzou Loses 1,500 Students, Is Flat Broke After Caving to Campus Protests

The University of Missouri (MU) is losing about 1500 students and is facing a huge $32 million budget shortfall four months after it attracted national attention as the site of massive race-based campus protests.

“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention this coming fall. I wish I had better news,” said MU interim chancellor Hank Foley in a Wednesday letter to school staff that was obtained by Fox Sports.

According to Foley’s letter, MU will have about 1500 fewer students in fall 2016 compared to last year, an unexpected drop that is in turn causing a big dip in the school’s tuition income…

    Just raise tuition and tell the snowflake warriors it’s a tax on The Man, in this case, their parents.

    It costs a fortune to send you kids to an American univesity, if they don’t clean up their act it will get worse next year.

    We simply cannot afford to offer classes on social commentary of things like gender & race. That’s where I’d look for cost savings.

  • Get the word out.

    Anything but STEM classes (and even some of them) are liberal/progressive wastes of time.

    When students quit wasting money on PC BS, these worthless whiner professors and classes will disappear. It will not be soon enough.

    Time for subsidies. And really, shouldn’t the government be running the education system, shaping our future voters and leaders?

      Same people running the bureaucracies as the academies, might as well end the pretence and leave no doubt as to where power flows.
