The man behind the writing.
Not very long ago, John McGinnis, the veteran Louisiana political writer, wrote that Governor Bobby Jindal was reluctant to raise the tuition at public universities and colleges. I appreciate the former Governor’s reluctance to raise those fees that many of us parents, who had children in college, already believed were too high. As a parent who helped put four children through college, I know that middle and working-class Americans are struggling under the burden of increased college costs. It’s a travesty when parents have to take out second mortgages on their homes just to send their children to college.
