To the Editor: The Higher Ed bubble is about to burst. Old Main is clumsily, though earnestly trying to ready Dear Old State for the dot-EDU collapse by reducing costs. It is embracing MOOCS and distance education, employing more part-time instructors and adjunct professors, outsourcing overhead functions, reigning in health care expenditures, and cutting academic programs which yield graduates unable to repay their student debt. As the area's largest employer tightens its belt in preparation for economic crisis, so too must State College Area School District. $115 million for a new high school, on top of our previous building loans and our underfunded pension obligations is too much debt for the difficult times ahead. For those of us who will be left with the tab, please vote no on May 20th. John Groenveld
