The State Government and Role
The state government and the public interest
The state government is in a better position to make sure that the public interest regarding higher education funding is concerned to ensure that learning continues effectively. Most of the university in the state has moved to the extent of directing the funding to the people hence making like very much difficult for most of the students who can afford to pay the college fees. Therefore, it’s the public interest for all of the students both from the middle-class families to go to school and change the society since change begins in mind and the ability to identify something you can do better in the society. Ideally, the ranking should be regarding amount the graduate gives to the community regarding outcomes (Stone, 2012).
Therefore, the state government should create an alignment by progressing beyond the mode of business as usual in supporting the higher education in the nation (Richardson & Martinez, 2009). Previously the state has acted in the name of an only building and maintaining capacity rather than primarily using the available capacity to achieve the desired outcomes in line with the higher education forum. The state government should decline from the passion of disconnecting from the general support of the colleges and the university for the benefit of the society which forms the major part of the public opinions and has the majority rule. Therefore, for the respect of the public opinion, the state should allow the higher education institutions to do the budget for the funding as they wait to finance the budget to ensure that the institution has enough funds for the project (Altbach, Reisberg & Rumbley, 2010).
