I live in the City of Sunnyvale. There, a local bond initiative to build a new library failed; as have various bond initiatives to improve our schools.
Sunnyvale is in California, where the state government has starved the towns of school funds and not funded the university system to keep up with the growth in the number of students, etc.
California is in the United States, where the President has vetoed a bill to extend medical care to children; where the Republican Congress has made it harder for educated foreigners to come; where the EPA has tried to deregulate to allow even more pollution in the air; etc.
(I left out the Santa Clara County government. They support the county library system, but I don't know what else they do with respect to human resource development.)
University of Houston
University of Texas at Tyler
I was on the Concordia campus about a week ago - must be the most beautiful campus of any college in the US. Check it out.
