MN 2020: Remember where you came from

Minnesota 2020 Executive Director John Van Hecke mentions in the Worthington Daily Globe what he sees as an I’ve-got-mine-but-tough-for-you attitude in Minnesota’s higher-ed budget talks:

Since the legislative session began, I’ve repeatedly paged through the state’s little green session guide. I noticed a lot of policymakers attended one of Minnesota’s many MnSCU schools, which got me thinking: If all of these state leaders depended on MnSCU for an accessible, affordable higher education to help them succeed, why would they want to limit that opportunity for other Minnesotans?
