The stuff that I read and think you should too....

Pauline Tam of the Ottawa Citizen wrote an excellent piece following up on the Kajouji story last Saturday. Tam puts the story into the larger context of the relationship universities are bound by law to have with the parents of students.

Interestingly, private universities are spending 6.9% more on "direct instructional spending" compared to 3.2% at public institutions. Now, that’s a story.
