NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Republican Tennessee lawmaker says he supports getting rid of higher education because he argues it would cut off the “liberal breeding ground.”

Sen. Kerry Roberts of Springfield called for eliminating higher education while speaking about attending a recent abortion legislative hearing on his conservative radio talk show on Sept. 2.

Roberts specifically called out one activist who testified in favor of protecting abortion rights. He asserted without evidence that the woman’s beliefs were a “product of higher education” and claimed that getting rid of higher education would “save America.”

The senator did not immediately respond to a request for further elaboration.

Roberts also questioned funding higher education with tax dollars. He voted in favor of the state’s $38.5 billion budget earlier this year, which included money for colleges and universities.

Support Democracy. Racism/bigotry is a mental disease.

I am not sure what, however something needs to be done about upper education.  Cost have soared while to many degrees not only won't pay for themselves but won't get a job.  

I do support taking money from university funds and investing in k-6 grades.  build a good base and they will learn on their own.
