U. of I. pledges free tuition to students in families earning less than $61K.

Everybody who makes $62,000+ heard the news and felt deep hatred for the higher education system.

The funny thing, as the linked article points out, is that these students already pay pretty much nothing in tuition. This announcement helps nobody. But it turns a huge number of people into enemies of higher education.

It’s as if universities competed in who did the worst in PR.
