4. Iowans outside of the few major cities have harbored a hate for higher education in Iowa since

the Vietnam War. Finally after some 50+ years they have the kinds of votes to take revenge and they will not miss their chance.

Of course it is not ISU or UNI they hate. It is Iowa and Iowa City. Unfortunately for the rural legislators they sometimes have to wing their beloved ISU in order to get a good shot at Iowa.

Add the designating of the university system to the naked attempt to undermine Iowa's public K-12 system with vouchers for private (often religious) education and you have the makings of an education system in decline and a group pf legislators delighting in that decline.
