Quotes

...Low-income and middle-income graduate students would lose out," he said. "In 2013, the Lifetime Learning Credit, which this bill eliminates, served nearly two million students with incomes at or below $75,000, including 1 million with an income of $40,000 or less.”"
"The board has never told faculty what academic programs they could or couldn’t have,” Cabe said. “All the decisions have been made by faculty committees and voted upon by the faculty.”"
The bottom line, the brief states, is that "to hold that scholarship student-athletes are employees would be an unprecedented intrusion into the educational missions of universities. It would undermine education by impinging on academic freedom and would exacerbate many of the problems critics find with intercollegiate athletics."
...As noted in our new institutional history Bethany College: A Liberal Arts Odyssey by Dr. D Duane Cummins, "the development of physical, intellectual, and moral human powers stood as a key feature" of Campbell's "towering devotion to education."
