SOLD! sign projected on USU business school to protest $25M gift from Koch Foundation

A sold sign featuring an image of the Koch brothers was projected on a wall of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University in protest of a recent $25 million gift to the school.

LOGAN — A group objecting to the recent $25 million gift by the Koch Foundation to Utah State University’s Jon M. Huntsman School of Business recently projected a SOLD! sign on the wall of the building in protest.

The image, which depicts brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch, states “SOLD! Utah State University Respected research institution. $25,000,000," was reportedly projected on a wall of the school at night some time this past week, according to a press release.

The $25 million gift was half of a $50 million joint donation by the Koch Foundation and the Huntsman Foundation to launch the Center for Growth and Opportunity and expand the highly selective Huntsman Scholar Program.

The gift, the largest in university history, was announced during the business school convocation last month.

1. That way the Kochs control who's hired and what's taught

Unfortunately, its called the brainwashing of your children by the rw. As I've said many times...do your research on the very real plan set forth by this government. Read "The Dumbing Down of America" and learn. How else can you explain the ignorance of many in this country? We are way behind other countries in education. The sooner everyone wakes up to this fact the better off we'll all be.
